The Giants reportedly expect starting left guard Geoff Schwartz to potentially miss an extended stretch of time with a dislocated toe.

Speaking to reporters Saturday, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Schwartz and reserve wide receiver Marcus Harris “are going to be a long while, probably” with injuries suffered in Friday’s night’s exhibition vs. the Jets, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported.

The Giants added the 28-year-old Schwartz in free agency in their efforts to revamp their offensive line. He graded out as the NFL’s ninth-best guard in Pro Football Focus‘ ratings last season with Kansas City.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported Schwartz would see a specialist regarding his injury.

Rookie Weston Richburg filled in for Schwartz vs. the Jets.

The Giants’ interior line took a hit earlier this summer when long-time right guard Chris Snee retired because of injuries. And losing Schwartz would be a major loss.

The 25-year-old Harris sustained a shoulder injury against the Jets. He is a first-year pro from Murray State.
