September 24, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: According to Newsday, the MRI taken on OG Chris Snee’s hip showed no new damage, but if the pain does not subside, other options would have to be considered, including season-ending Injured Reserve.
“The hope is that it calms down and lets him get back to playing to his standard,” an unidentified source told Newsday. “If it doesn’t calm down, we are going to have to do something.”
Snee had offseason surgery on his hip. He decided to delay the surgery until after the Pro Bowl so he could participate in that game and was on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) List until August 6.
Meanwhile, The Star-Ledger is reporting that FB Henry Hynoski’s shoulder fracture is serious and may be season-ending.
RB Andre Brown (fractured leg), who is on short-term Injured Reserve, says he’s ahead of schedule on his rehab. Under the short-term IR rules, however, Brown cannot be added to the 53-man roster until after Week 8.
New York Giants Practice Squad Moves: The New York Giants have re-signed OT Steven “Sam” Baker and signed LB Ty Powell to the Practice Squad.
To make room for Baker and Powell, the Giants have terminated the Practice Squad contracts of DE Matt Broha and WR Marcus Harris.
