Moss to IR


Recommended Posts



Veteran wide receiver Sinorice Moss, veteran quarterback Jim Sorgi and promising rookie Adrian Tracy were placed on injured reserve this morning, three of the five moves that helped the Giants pare their roster to 75 players.


Offensive lineman Kevin Boothe was also placed on the reserve physically unable to perform list, sidelining him for the first six weeks of the season. Rookie wide receiver Nyan Boateng was waived.


Moss has been a roster mainstay since 2006, but a groin injury slowed his return to the field in recent weeks. He underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia in Philadelphia this morning.


Sorgi was signed during the offseason to serve as Eli Manning's backup, although his preseason was halted by a shoulder injury suffered in the opener. His injury leaves Rhett Bomar as the backup quarterback, although the Giants are expected to explore veteran options. Bomar has not attempted in a pass in a regular season game.


Tracy was transitioning from defensive end to outside linebacker and led the team in tackles in its second preseason game. He suffered a dislocated elbow on Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens, and underwent surgery Monday to repair ligament damage.


Boothe will be eligible to return on Oct. 19, and can practice up to 21 days before the team needs to add him to the active roster, release him or place him on IR.


The roster must be further trimmed to 53 players this weekend. The Giants play Thursday against the New England Patriots.


We'll probably see an injury settlement for him and Sorgi, considering this was his last year anyway.


Either way, our long national nightmare is over.
