This is no Joke

The Giants have already filled the roster spot vacated by TE Jeremy Shockey's injury. The team signed TE Jerome Collins off its practice squad today and will officially place Shockey on injured reserve in the next two days, according to someone who has been informed of both impending roster moves.


Coach Tom Coughlin said today Shockey will undergo surgery later this week and said the sixth-year veteran's ankle is an issue, not just the fibula. Coughlin didn't provide the details, so it's unclear if Shockey broke a bone in his ankle or if he dislocated it.


Expect both Mike Matthews and Kevin Boss to see time in Shockey's absence. Collins is also an intriguing option. He's a 6-3, 270-pound monster who can also run and he's impressed the coaching staff since being added to the practice squad in Week 2.


Collins was drafted in the fifth round of the 2005 draft by the Rams and was also on the Cowboys' practice squad when the Colts signed him to their active roster last year. Collins picked up a ring with Indy last year, but he was out for most of the season with a torn Achilles' tendon suffered in December.
