Boley off PUP; Giants Cut 3

Michael Boley is off the Physically Unable to Perform List, according to Mike Garafolo and Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger. Boley is targeting week 2 as his return–remember, he is suspended for week one for his violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.

“It’s a big relief,” Boley said in the locker room Monday morning. “I’ve been sitting out and not being able to be involved in walkthroughs, (not) being able to be out there with the team and actually go through stuff with them. It’s been kind of frustrating, to be honest. I’m really excited to be back.”

The Giants also cut three players in anticipation of tomorrow’s deadline to trim the roster from 80 to 75. Those players are: CB Stoney Woodson (who was waived/injured with an ankle injury), WR Taye Biddle, and OL Terrance Pennington. With Andre Brown expected to move to the IR, they have one more cut to make. Honestly, I’m surprised Woodson was cut. Of course, he was hurt. And Waived/injured means the team is releasing Woodson, and other teams are eligible to claim him, but the claiming team is notified that the player is not ready to play. If he clears waivers, the Giants will retain Stoney, and place him on the injured reserve. They can also reach an injury settlement with him. He was having a tremendous camp, and was outstanding in the Carolina game. I’m surprised that they are risking losing him. I thought he was going to be an important part of the secondary this year. And if they were going to cut a corner, why not DeAndre Wright? Wright looked lost against the Jets, and was beaten badly on a 70 yard touchdown. I guess this means that Bruce Johnson has made the team. Still, a bit shocked. As for Biddle and Pennington, they had no chance of making the team anyway:they were just camp bodies.

  1. […] now at 74 players, so they can pick up a player on waivers if they want to. Remember, the Giants cut three players yesterday as well. They have to trim the roster to 53 by 4 PM Saturday. […]
