Michael Johnson placed on IR

New York Giants’ safety Michael Johnson was placed on injured reserve today with a herniated disc (back). Johnson’s 2010 season is now over. This according to Giants PR guy Pat Hanlon. Johnson was a big contributor as a rookie to the 07′ super bowl team. With Johnson now on IR, this makes two safeties for the Giants’ on IR this season. The other safety was rookie Chad Jones’, who suffered severe injuries in a car accident this summer.

With Johnson on IR, the Giants’ signed DB Brian Jackson to the active roster. Jackson was previously on the practice squad. Jackson was signed by the Giants’ when he was cut by the Jets. Jackson was featured on Hard Knocks this summer.

    Call me insensative but Chad Jones is done. Anyone who has their leg crushed to the point of arteries hanging out is going to be lucky to run let alone keep up in the NFL. Michael JOhnson is a scrub. 07 is a bit fuzzy but I know he hasnt done a damn thing for NY in 09/10. Hand him and Moss their pink slips and save some salary.

    Johnson’s done in N.Y. He should be after that horrible season last year. I don’t know what happened to him, he looked pretty good in his second year.

    Is anyone else concerned that so many of our younger players who showed initial promise have failed to develop or regressed so much?

    Johnson, Ross, Kehl, Wilkinson, Alford, Beatty, Barden, Beckum, Sintim, etc all either showed initial promise in their rookie years or were drafted w some hope that they would contribute to the team.

    Their combined contribution so far this year is zero.

    Did Reese over value them? Have the position coaches failed to “coach them up”? Do the coordinators have them in the wrong roles?

      It’s scary actually, especially in Ross’ case, I’m starting to lose faith in him now, and I really thought he could be an elite corner in this league. It’s too early on Beatty, Barden, and Sintim though I agree Sintim has looked better as a DE. Beckum has made a few catches this year and is looking to improve his blocking, he’ll be a decent second tight end as he develops his game.

    To CMH- I think it is alarming that so many of our young guys are not helping as we thought they would, after showing a bit of promise.. I gotta say, i loved almost every pick from the past 2to3 drafts, and getting W.Beatty at the end of RD 2 last yr, i thought was insane! I pictured beckum being to us, what Finley is now, to the Pack.. I thought sintim would have no type of transiton, as i thought that was overrated thinking, as a Football player is a football player.. I thought barden would help alittle as a rookie, and really jump into the fold this yr(think 45rec 600yrd 5td).. I don’t know whats up, but its very discouraging, that it seems,every move we make, Draft or FA’cy lately isn’t helping and almost feels, as if its hurting us.. I can’t tell u how high i was on Linval Joseph coming out, with his size and also ability to make plays in the backfield, i pictured a Young Freddy Robbins type, albeit, way to early to put him in thi convo, i guess.. But, u get the point, and i am with u in the frustration mix, and lets just hope these, we thought talented players start showing serious signs, very quickly
