Giants OL Kevin Boothe tears pectoral muscle

By TOM CANAVAN, AP Sports Writer



EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—New York Giants backup offensive lineman Kevin Boothe(notes) is going to be sidelined four months with a torn pectoral muscle.


Boothe was injured earlier this week while working out and will have surgery next week, the team said Friday.


Starting tight end Kevin Boss(notes) also is going to have surgery next week, on his ankle. The arthroscopic procedure should sideline him for four to six weeks, meaning he should be ready for training camp in late July.


Most of the Giants who had surgery in the last year participated in the organized team activities that began this week, including running back Andre Brown(notes) and defensive tackle Jay Alford(notes), who were injured before last season.


Brown had his rookie season spoiled by a ruptured Achilles’ tendon in a training camp practice on Aug. 14. Alford tore knee ligaments in a preseason game at Chicago.


Also participating are running back Brandon Jacobs(notes) (knee surgery), defensive end Justin Tuck(notes) (shoulder), fullback Madison Hedgecock(notes) (shoulder), center Shaun O’Hara(notes) (elbow), guard Rich Seubert(notes) (shoulder), receiver Mario Manningham(notes) (shoulder) and linebacker Gerris Wilkinson(notes) (wrist).


The biggest concern is starting safety Kenny Phillips(notes), who underwent major knee surgery early last season and still is not ready to participate in drills.


Running back Ahmad Bradshaw(notes) (both feet and one ankle), receiver Hakeem Nicks(notes) (wrist/toe) and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard(notes) (shoulder) did not participate this week, although Bradshaw and Nicks are expected to return within the next two weeks.

yeah, this is the situation where petrus will be coming in handy.



this will be less an issue if beatty ends up winning the left tackle job and deihl moves to tackle, giving us great guard depth in Seubert.
