Giants place Jim Sorgi, Sinorice Moss on injured reserve

For the second straight year, a shoulder problem will end Manning family backup Jim Sorgi’s season.

Sorgi, who was worried about losing his spot on the team, couldn’t get healthy in time to help the Giants.  An injury settlement could be possible in the future if he rehabbed the shoulder successfully.

The Sorgi news leaves Rhett Bomar as Eli Manning’s backup quarterback.  Don’t be surprised if the Giants go after another veteran on waivers later this week.

The Giants also placed wide receiver Sinorice Moss on injured reserve after he underwent a sports hernia surgery.  Moss has improbably survived five seasons now in New York despite catching only 39 passes since being taken in the second round of the 2006 draft.

The team also placed Adrian Tracy on injured reserve; offensive lineman Kevin Boothe on reserve/PUP; and waived Nyan Boateng.

    How could he have survived 5 seasons if he was only drafted last year? I think there’s a type on there somewhere! Lol.

    5 seasons since 2009? Impressive. You should still let me into the Florio Fantasy Football pool, or at least give me an editing job from down here in the jungles of Costa Rica.

    I think you meant to say second round of the 2006 NFL draft, since that would amount to five seasons…

    Even more improbable is that 5 seasons have been played since the 2009 draft.

    “An injury settlement could be possible in the future if he rehabbed the shoulder successfully.”
    Also, why would they give him an injury settlement if he injured his shoulder off the field?

    Giants will trade for Rosenfels (or sign him when the Vikes cut him).

    This kid must have photos of the coach with a mule no other way he could still be paid
    The good news is maybe they can keep the Cruz kid who looks like he has a chance of helping the team.
    I do hope they find a real backup for easy E so that when we 50 points ahead of the cowscum or epukes he can relax on the bench.

    Rosenthal has survived 5 years at PFT since being hired in 2009.

    how the hell does Sinorice Moss continue to draw NFL paychecks? you can tell the Giants are just afraid of him finding himself and putting it together for another team (Redskins?), and that’s why they refuse to let him go.

    Jeff Garcia. Paging Mr. Jeff Garcia.

    The Giants should sign kellen clemens when he gets released by the jets.

    Can’t understand why Moss was simply cut and Sorgi just place on the PUP list and than reviewed after week 6?

  15. CaptainManhattan says: Aug 31, 2010 1:35 PM

    Greggg, you truly are the worst.
    Sinorice is a good player when healthy, but that’s only about three weeks a year.

    “Can’t understand why Moss was simply cut and Sorgi just place on the PUP list and than reviewed after week 6?”
    Moss and Sorgi were both put on the IR.
