Giants’ Justin Currie Fractures Ankle

Giants rookie safety Justin Currie fractured his right ankle during the team’s game Saturday against Jacksonville, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano (Twitter link). Currie will miss the season as a result, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post tweeted.

Currie signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Western Michigan in May, but the team cut him in July before signing him yet again a week later. He’s the latest first-year Giants safety to suffer an injury this summer, joining Mykkele Thompson (torn Achilles) and Landon Collins (sprained MCL).

In his first NFL action, an Aug. 14 preseason loss to Cincinnati, Currie led the Giants with 50 snaps (41 on defense, nine on special teams), according to James Kratch of

In addition to Currie, the Giants also lost two other defenders – linebackers Jon Beason (sprained left knee) and Mark Herzlich (concussion) – to injuries against the Jaguars. It’s currently unknown how much time, if any, the two will miss.

    Big Blue is really up against it. They were out 16 guys coming into the game. That maligned training staff will have its work cut out for it.

    What’s new? Look at the last 4 seasons!!! Same garbage, different year. After this happens this many seasons in a row, you’ve got to push aside the bad luck theory, its internal. This organization needs to make better choices as far as players, and do modern training like all the other up to date teams are. Time for change, that starts with the GM and coach. Time to move on. Same crap, year after year.
