Giants Place Geoff Schwartz On IR

The Giants announced that they have placed Geoff Schwartz on injured reserve. As previously reported, the Giants will be adding guard Adam Gettis to the active roster off of the Raiders’ taxi squad.

The entire Giants offensive line has been finding it difficult to stay on the field this season. Former first-round pick Justin Pugh was ruled out for Sunday’s contest with a concussion, his second-straight game missed with that injury. Center Weston Richburg was also sidelined on Sunday with a high ankle sprain. John Jerry, Dallas Reynolds, and rookie Bobby Hart have been seeing unexpected playing time because of the rash of injuries to the interior of the offensive line.

Schwartz struggled with injury for the Giants last year, when he played in only two games after signing a decent-sized free agent contract the previous offseason. The team has yet to get a return on investment for the four-year deal worth $16.8MM and $6.2MM guaranteed. Now, it’s fair to wonder what Schwartz’ future will be with Big Blue beyond 2015.

    This assortment of injuries to the offensive line could be what sinks the Giants, who weren’t exactly lighting it up to begin with. Given what Big Blue did with a less-than-optimal line last year, a playoff push’s error margin may be too slim. Good thing 8-8 may get it done as opposed to 2014’s landscape.
