The Giants got a win over the Vikings on Monday night, but things didn’t otherwise look too different from the rest of their 2013 season outside of the better result.
Similar struggles to the first six weeks were on display in all phases of the game and the team also watched another starting player leave a game with an injury. Center David Baas left with a knee injury early in the game and is headed for an MRI on Tuesday without a great deal of optimism about what doctors will find.
“We think we have an idea what it is,” Baas said, via Dan Graziano of ESPN.com. “Hopefully it’s not what we think, but we’ll see. Obviously it’s frustrating, because you feel like you can’t catch a break. But it is what it is.”
If Baas, who had missed the previous three games with a neck injury, has suffered a torn ligament, as he seems to be suggesting, it will bring his season to a close and return Jim Cordle to the starting lineup. That would make two starting offensive linemen lost for the season for the Giants, who likely feel just as frustrated as Baas about their injury problems this season.
