Many Giants fans were surprised when the team cut veteran offensive lineman Shaun O’Hara. Imagine how he felt.
Giants tackle Shawn Andrews, who played in 13 games and started seven last season, tweeted that he and the team failed to rework the six-year, $32-million contract he signed last year. Also, former 49ers center David Baas has reportedly agreed to terms with New York.
A day after sitting out with a sore wrist, Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw practiced on Thursday. “There’s no problem,” said Bradshaw.
The back condition had cost Andrews the entire work week before last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he has been listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against Jacksonville.
Left tackle Shawn Andrews missed his second straight practice Thursday and his status for Sunday’s game against his former Philadelphia Eagles teammates is uncertain.
There’s another injury on the New York Giants’ offensive line. Tackle Shawn Andrews, who has replaced the injured David Diehl at left tackle, missed practice on Wednesday with an undisclosed back problem.
Eli Manning surely will miss Steve Smith, one of the NFL’s premier route runners and his go-to receiver, but the Giants still should have enough weapons to execute their game plan against the Cowboys.
Shawn Andrews is in, David Diehl is out. Adam Koets is on injured reserve, Shaun O’Hara is in the training room instead of on the practice field, and Rich Seubert has moved from left guard to center to replace both of them.
Less than a week after getting their running game going, the New York Giants’ offensive line is suddenly in flux. Blame it on injuries.
The New York Giants have signed three-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman Shawn Andrews. The Giants announced the signing Friday.
