Giants’ Nat Berhe Done For Season

SEPTEMBER 5: Berhe has confirmed on Twitter that his season is over and that he’ll be heading to injured reserve.

AUGUST 27: The Giants’ secondary just can’t catch a break. Nat Berhe is expected to become the fourth Giants safety to have his season end prematurely when he undergoes calf surgery on Friday, two sources tell Jordan Raanan of the Star-Ledger. Berhe took to Twitter earlier this evening to add that the procedure will remove a hardened blood clot from his calf.

Berhe joins Bennett Jackson, Mykkele Thompson, and Justin Currie as Giants safeties whose seasons have ended before they really started. Cooper Taylor now stands as the lone holdover from last season. The Giants added veteran Jeromy Miles before the start of camp and Brandon Meriweather, Justin Halley and C.J. Conway in the past few weeks to beef up the safety position alongside rookie Landon Collins.

Unfortunately for the Giants, there are not a lot of quality outside options at safety. However, safety Jeremy Deering is on the workout trail and one has to wonder if the Giants could schedule an audition with the Rutgers product.

    This is staggering, especially for a team that entered with one of the more grim safety stables in the game. Collins’ health is now paramount to the Giants coaxing even adequate play from their back line.

    Starting to look like deja vu for the Giants, considering they finished last season with something like 22 players on injured reserve. I’m sure there’s only so much teams can do when it comes to injury prevention (it’s a violent game, after all), but if I were the Giants, I’d want to do everything I could to find out if there’s a reason the team has had such a brutal run of injuries in recent years — maybe it’s more than just bad luck.

    I’ve been saying this for a couple of years nown… there has to be a connection to their playing surfaces. Seriously, the Giants are the most injured team in football in recent seasons.
