Big Blue Turns To Cordle At Center

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York Giants center David Baas is done for the season after injuring his left knee during Monday night’s win over the Minnesota Vikings.

“It’s very frustrating, to say the least,” Baas said, according to the team’s official website. “You work so hard. We said we can’t catch a break.”

Baas, placed on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday, had been out since Week 4 with an injury to his neck.

He said he was hurt early in the first quarter against the Vikings when “a linebacker whipped into my leg or something like that.”

“You kind of know right away when you get that feeling,” he said. “I was hoping it wasn’t anything worse, but it’s definitely bad enough to where it’s come to this.”

New York was already thin at offensive line. A hip injury forced Chris Snee to the IR earlier this month.

The Giants said Jim Cordle will start at center Sunday in Philadelphia.

“I’m just thankful my ACL is intact because I would have been really ticked off,” Baas said. “It’s tough. As corny as it sounds, you get knocked down, but you’ve got to get back up every time.”
