EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The Giants are placing Justin Pugh on injured reserve, ending the offensive lineman’s season with three games left to play.
Pugh has missed the past four games with a back injury, which he aggravated during practice last week.
The five-year veteran received a second opinion Wednesday. He was told surgery was not needed but that he will need rest and rehab.
Pugh, 27, will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
The Giants are 2-11. They host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
