Coughlin: Geoff Schwartz to miss a “long while” with toe injury

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.

    It’s a toe, man up already. Chop the damn thing off if you have to in order to be ready to play week 1. Todays athletes are soft.

    Doesn’t matter much, the Giants offensive line couldn’t even block girl scouts.

    This guy has been a solid starter every year he has been in the league. Hardly a bust.

    no he hasn’t! he spent 2 seasons not even starting. give me a break. stop spouting off nonsense. he only got 7 starts last year too. you act like he is this 16 game starter year in and year out. so freaking not true. and he looked terrible in preseason

    The entire O-Line looks like a bad joke gone worse. Who cares if they lose one guard. It’s already in shambles. They can’t give their QBs 3 seconds before they’re scrambling for their dear lives.
