Giants place Corey Webster on injured reserve

Cornerback Corey Webster’s time with the Giants may have come to an end on Tuesday.

The team placed Webster on injured reserve, confirming that the veteran would not return this season after missing the last six games with an ankle injury. Webster only played in four games this year, missing a stretch earlier in the season with a groin injury, and wasn’t nearly as effective as he was in his better days.

Those days are further and further in the rearview mirror as Webster also struggled throughout the 2012 season. He’s signed for $1 million for next season, but it is a voidable year and the Giants will likely be moving on as they try to come back from a losing season.

The Giants promoted wide receiver Julian Talley from the practice squad. Talley went to UMass and he could be pressed into service if the senior UMass alum on the roster, Victor Cruz, isn’t cleared to play after suffering a concussion and knee sprain in last Sunday’s 23-0 loss to the Seahawks.

    Not bad idea to let Eli take a breather and let Nassib get some experience under his cup.

    Poor Cruz. Was only like 27 yards shy of a 1,000 yard season, went over it on the catch he got injured, only to go back under when replay review showed the ball hit the ground and it got overturned.

    Just bring in the entire practice squad. They couldn’t be any worse.

    Aside from Cruz, players like Talley are a microcosm of the problems plaguing our roster.

    It’s ok to have one or two small school guys on your team but not the numbers we have. Our biggest school at WR is NC (Nicks). Jernigan is from Troy.

    Our OL are from UConn, Indiana, Southern Ill, and Cornell. Only Pugh is from Syracuse (moderately a big time school).

    The defense has more players from big time schools and it’s no coincidence why they are a much better unit.

    This team needs to start drafting big, b-a OL from big time top ten schools.

    Let’s hope so. His 15 minutes of fame was up a long time ago (2007).

    Webster hasn’t been productive since before last year. The money from this year would have been better spent on another player.

    well….Rueban Randle went to LSU (kind of a big school in case you haven’t heard)

    in terms of OL, Snee went to BC (a perennial powerhouse for developing lineman). Brewer (who is awful) went to Indiana, Mosley (who is worse) went to Auburn. both big schools. big school does not equal talent.

    Michale Strahan came from North Texas, Phil Simms from Morhead State.

    our defense full of players from big schools includes Aaron Ross (texas) and Corey Webster (LSU) who even when healthy have been non-factors the last 2 years.

    the problem with the giants roster is it is chock full of aging vets, who have above average contracts and cap numbers, which when combined with Eli’s contract, crippled our ability to sign quality depth. pair that with about 3 sub par drafts from Jerry Reese and boom you have the 2013 Giants.

    @careerender – thanks for rattling off players from the 80′s and 90′s for me.

    My list wasn’t all encompassing. I know our ENTIRE team isn’t from small time schools.

    By the way…when was the last time Indiana was relevant in NCAA? When Randle-El was the QB?

    What’s that old saying about cutting a guy a year too early rather than a year too late? Jerry Reese… Take heed.

    Even if Cruz doesn’t play this week he has Washington in week 17 and he generally plays pretty well against them. Remember last year when he and Eli scorched their secondary right up the middle?
