Playing safety for the Giants is quickly becoming the football equivalent of being the drummer in Spinal Tap.
The team announced that rookie safety Justin Currie suffered a fractured ankle in tonight’s preseason game against the Jaguars.
Currie, a rookie free agent from Western Michigan, is just the latest in a series of of players getting injured at the position for the Giants. Fifth-round rookie Mykkele Thompson tore his Achilles in the first preseason game, and second-rounder Landon Collins sprained his MCL. Nat Berhe has also missed time.
That caused them to get desperate and sign Brandon Meriweather, and at the current rate, he’s going to end up playing, unless he ends up standing too close to Mick Shrimpton.
