GIANTS PLACE GEOFF SCHWARTZ ON INJURED RESERVE…
As expected, the New York Giants have placed offensive guard Geoff Schwartz on season-ending Injured Reserve. Schwartz fractured his lower left leg in the team’s 20-14 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Schwartz also missed 14 games in 2014 in his first season season with the Giants due to toe and left ankle injuries that both required surgery.
GIANTS SIGN ADAM GETTIS FROM RAIDERS PRACTICE SQUAD…
The New York Giants have signed offensive guard Adam Gettis from the Practice Squad of the Oakland Raiders. Gettis spent two stints on the Giants’ Practice Squad this season (September 6 – October 15 and October 21 – November 4). Gettis was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. The Redskins waived Gettis in August 2014. The Giants signed him off of the Practice Squad of the Pittsburgh Steelers in December 2014. Gettis lacks ideal size and power, but he is an athletic lineman with good mobility.
Victor Cruz goes in for calf surgery today. Did not play at all this season coming off major knee surgery, done in summer calf injury.

ELI MANNING ON WFAN…
The audio of Monday’s WFAN Radio interview with quarterback Eli Manning is available on CBS New York’s website.
Quarterback Eli Manning’s 321 passing yards on Sunday increased his season total to 3,021 yards. This is the 11th consecutive season Manning has thrown for more than 3,000 yards. He is one of seven quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for at least 3,000 yards in 11 different seasons, joining Brett Favre (18), Peyton Manning (16), Tom Brady (13), Dan Marino (13), Drew Brees (12) and John Elway (12).
Manning is the fourth quarterback to throw for 3,000 in 11 consecutive seasons, joining Favre (18 from 1992 to 2009), Peyton Manning (13 from 1998 to 2010) and Brees (12 from 2004 to 2015).
The Giants are 11-19 (.367) away from MetLife Stadium since the start of the 2012 season. From 2004-11 (Tom Coughlin’s first eight years as coach), they were 38-26 (.594) as visitors.
The Giants’ three rushing touchdowns through 11 games is their lowest total since they had two in 1996.
The Giants’ 12 sacks is their lowest 11-game total since team sacks were first tracked in 1963. Their lowest full-season total since the 16-game schedule was instituted in 1978 is 25 in 1992.
