Pierce Out Indefinitely

The Giants couldn’t be healthy for this long. Moments ago, the Giants announced that Antonio Pierce is out indefinitely after a MRI revealed a bulging disc in his neck. Here’s what Pierce had to say:

 “I’m shocked with what I heard from the doctors this afternoon..had no idea what happened a few weeks ago could keep me off the field.

No word on how long indefinitely means. His replacement was not announced, but I would suspect it to be Chase Blackburn. This is a huge blow to the Giants. Pierce is the leader of the defense, he makes all the calls on the field. Blackburn, or whoever it might be, has to step up.

    in terms of leadership — it is a huge blow. perhaps he can make calls from the press box above and help out that way though… wishful thinking.

    but this is a chance for Goff and Sintim to really participate in this defense and give some youthful punch to a lacking LB crew that had lost a step, Pierce included.

    Could be a blessing in disguise.
    Could be disaster, we shall see which Sunday.

    This just strengthens my argument to pick up Brandon Spikes with our first round pick.
