Report: Injured reserve/return a possibility for Geoff Schwartz

The Giants got some good news about guard Geoff Schwartz’s dislocated toe this week when it was determined that he wouldn’t need surgery to repair the injury.

The team said the plan was for Schwartz to wear a walking boot for 7-10 days before starting his rehabilitation with the situation being reevaluated on a week-to-week basis beyond that point. According to a report from Kimberly Jones of NFL Media, that plan might be altered a bit.

Jones reports that Schwartz is “likely, but not certain” to be placed on injured reserve with the designation to return as the team sets up its roster for the start of the regular season. Going that route would allow the Giants to play with a full roster while Schwartz recovers, but would mean that Schwartz couldn’t return to the lineup until at least the ninth week of the regular season.

That would take away perhaps the best offensive lineman on a team that needs to do a better job of protecting Eli Manning, so you’d imagine the Giants would want to be sure that Schwartz won’t be healthy in the first two months of the season before going that route. Rookie Weston Richburg has taken over the left guard spot for the Giants since Schwartz’s injury.

    Good news, I guess.
    The O/L still will be shredded
    Bye, bye Coughlin
    We are glad to see you and Eli go next year

    Can’t believe the Giants’ luck has run out already(missed Bills easy FG, catch off helmet, Asante Samuel missed INT, etc).

    At least Jerry Reese has stocked this team with great o-line depth after last year.

    Wait whats that?

    Remember when giants fans were bragging about how they were winning the NFC east because of those awesome OL signings

    All you haters know I am a huge Giants fan but even I have to admit the Ryan Nassib era does not look promising. The Giants already threw in the towel on 2014 back in the spring, so 2015 is what they’re looking for now but it’s not looking good.

    Too many once great Giants were lost this past year. From Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Myers, the best receiving duo the Giants have ever had, to Geoff Schwartz and Jon Beason, to the shutdown corner duo of Aaron Ross and Corey Webster, the Giants who have left and retired due to injury could fill another team’s ring of honor.

    Justin, I love your sarcasm and hope you keep it up for the whole season. As your name says you are now a member of Raider nation.
    This maybe a tough year for the Giants but lets have them all play a few games before we put the fork into them

    Overall bad news if Schwartz is considered your best lineman since he has been a journeyman most of his career!

    Greoff Schwartz is quality. He was one of the lineman who blocked for A.D. when he went for 2,097 yards and we paid him trinkets for it. Hate to see him finally get paid and this happen.
