Damontre Moore Recovering from Shoulder Surgery: Defensive end Damontre Moore informed The Star-Ledger on Tuesday that he is recovering from “minor” offseason shoulder injury. Moore injured his shoulder in the first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and subsequently missed the rest of training camp and the preseason.
Moore has not yet been cleared to begin fully working out with weights.
“I want to get back as healthy as possible and pick up like 15 pounds of muscle,” said Moore. “I can do light stuff, I’m not cleared to lift weights yet but as far as the other stuff goes, I’m maintaining my cardiovascular strength and stuff like that. Just trying to enhance that part of the game so once I get cleared I can focus on the weights.”
Adrien Robinson Says 2014 Has to Be His Breakout Season: Tight end Adrien Robinson, who missed virtually all of the 2013 season with injuries, told The Star-Ledger on Tuesday that 2014 has to be his breakout season.
“I hope so,” said Robinson. ”Definitely. It has to be this year.”
Robinson suffered a foot injury in the preseason and did not play again until Week 16 against the Detroit Lions. But he immediately left that game with a sprained knee and his season was over.
Robinson is also encouraged about the Giants hiring Ben McAdoo as their new offensive coordinator. McAdoo coached both the tight ends (2006-2011) and quarterbacks (2012-2013) in Green Bay. ”Definitely, I watched to see what type of offense it would be,” Robinson said. “(The Green Bay Packers) throw the ball to the tight end a lot. So for me, individually, that’s good.”
