Austin Tears Pectoral, Out For Season

This is getting ridiculous. Second round pick Marvin Austin has torn his pectoral muscle, will require surgery, and will be out for the season. The Giants lost 3 players for the season from one game. Just crazy. Austin probably wasn’t going to contribute much this year, but this will be 2nd straight year without football. That’s hard to make up, especially at a young age.

    Is the new stadium built on top of some sacred Indian burial ground or something?

    • Jason C. says:

      If that were true, the Jets would be affected too, and other than Jenkins the past couple years, and Rob Turner they haven’t suffered any long term injuries to important rotation players.

      This is friggin ridiculous, Jimmy Kennedy signing might be more need now than most people were saying a couple days ago…

    with the exception of course of TT these are average players at best. Come on you crybabies injuries happen. Austin and Witherspoon weren’t even going to contribute this year. The sky is not falling!
    Last I checked we still have Webster, Grant, Rolle, Phillips and Ross back there. Ross played a great game last night and I think he can rise to the challenge. Sucks we didn’t try to hold onto Cofield but I think Bernard will have a much better season and Canty is primed to break out. Boley looks great at linebacker too. When Osi gets healthy our pass rush will make our secondary’s job much easier.
    I alos loved our running game last night. If we dominate in that field of the game our D wont be on the field very long anyway. I also have faith that Reese will grab a vet for cheap that will come in and contribute like Deon Grant and Bullock did last year. my final noter is this: The Packers won it all last year despite serious injuries and this will serve as a test for this team to step up, man up, show up and do what it takes to win!!!! Go Big Blue!!!

      Witherspoon became the 4th, and then the 3rd corner due to previous injuries, and Austin was the 3rd DT in the rotation. To say these guys weren’t going to be asked to contribute this season is ignorance at best. While I’d hardly say the season is over, it certainly isn’t unaffected.

    I think this situation actually bodes well for the Giants. The most successful teams in recent history were underdogs. Its when the pressure to win is on the Gmen that they fail. Lets see what happens. The injury bug has certainly bit the Giants.

    when is Amukamara supposed to be back?

  6. Jason says:

    at least next year draft class is good we cld get a good top 10 talent the way this season is about to go

  7. Jared says:

    The Giants will be fine! Why would they end up with a top ten pick? Are you telling me that there are only going to be 9 teams worse than the Giants? Come on man!!

    hey GIANTS fans, sry to hear about all the injurys. I am a houston texans fan and i was wondering what you thought about this trade?

    Kareem Jackson CB. Last years first round pick out of Alabama
    Antoino Smith DE. 28 yrs of age


    Osi umenyiora DE. 29 yrs of age.

    Trade helps your secondary with young first round talent and replaces umenyiora with smith who is a beast as well. Just looking to bolster our defense even more and umenyiora would do that.

    • BlueManFla says:

      We could only wish that that trade would happen. Get rid of a disgruntled player, bring in a DE that’s probably not as talented but less injury prone, and also shore up a weak position (right now until Amukamara come back) with an up and coming player.

      I’m all for it.

    How did Austin tear his peck? Usually that’s during weight training, like the bench press or was it reaching out for a tackle. I think Mike Strahan tore a peck trying to make a tackle like that. Bad idea over extending past a certain point trying to tackle a 230 pound running back at full speed. Too much power your arm will give before the RB does.
