Rough Year For The Defensive Line:

I will never be an excuse maker for poor play but as I was reading today I began to put together a list of injuries to the defensive line of the Giants from this and the previous season.  They are in no particular order. Jay Alford was lost to a torn anterior cruciate ligament during […]

Jay Alford Out for Season

According to Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger, defensive tackle Jay Alford will undergo surgery on his knee, and will be placed on season ending injury reserve. Bad break for Alford. He was becoming an important part of the Giants defensive line. I suspect that the Giants will try to sign a defensive tackle off the […]

Players Out for Jets Game

Here are the players ruled out for tomorrow’s game against the Jets: WR David Tyree (hamstring) LB Antonio Pierce (foot), CB Aaron Ross (hamstring), CB Stoney Woodson (ankle), DT Chris Canty (hamstring), OL Orrin Thompson (thigh), RB Andre Brown (achilles), DT Jay Alford (knee) and LB Michael Boley (hip/PUP)

Canty Uses Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hammy

This is a lot of medical jargon, so I’ll have the Star Ledger explain it: When Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty met with team doctors in New York Monday, coach Tom Coughlin said he received additional treatment “to try to speed the healing” of his hamstring tear. The procedure he had done was the cutting-edge […]

DeOssie To Short Snap:

From The Star Ledger: Asked what the difference between snapping for field goals and punts is, Zak DeOssie cracked, “About eight yards.” Translation: DeOssie, who has served as the team’s long snapper for two seasons, doesn’t foresee any hitch in taking over short snapping duties in the wake of Jay Alford’s knee injury. Alford, who […]

Alford Has Two Torn Ligaments:

From As we’ve previously said, probably more than a few times, the top priority for the preseason is to emerge from the four games (five for the teams tapped to play in Canton) with minimal injuries. The Giants picked up a potentially significant one on Saturday night, with defensive tackle Jay Alford reportedly suffering […]

Alford Tears MCL, Canty Has Tear In Hamstring

Bad news for Jay Alford: His injury is worse than expected. Instead of a sprained knee, he has torn his MCL, and and a partial tear of his ACL, according to multiple outlets. The approach is wait and see–he will try to strength his knee over the next two weeks, and then Giants doctors will […]

Alford Sprains Knee:

Defensive tackle Jay Alford, who was having an excellent summer with the Giants, had to be carted off the field tonight but the initial diagnosis is that he only has a sprained MCL in his left knee. “I hope that’s all it is,” Tom Coughlin said. “But they have to go through all the tests.” […]

Giants “Lining up” with a 515

The New York Giants are exprimenting with a new defenseive alignment predicated on getting full use out of all the defensive linemen. People are calling it the 5-1-5 as in 5 linemen, 1 linebacker, and five defensive backs. In practice it has gotten Kiwanuka one one side and Umeinyora and Tuck on the other end […]

Bernard Visits Giants

According to the New York Post, defensive tackle Rocky Benard is visiting the Giants. If signed, he will work in a rotation with Fred Robbins, Barry Cofield, and Jay Alford.
