O'Hara Has "Mild" Lisfranc Sprain On Other Foot

It turns out Shaun O’Hara didn’t suffer a setback in his troublesome left foot during the bye week.

 

Instead, he hurt his other foot.

 

The Giants center has what Tom Coughlin called a “mild” mid-foot sprain on his right side - - not his left side, as I mistakenly told you earlier. According to two sources familiar with the injury, the sprain is actually to the Lisfranc ligament in his foot.

 

Both sources said it was a “mild” sprain, and though those injuries usually take 2-4 weeks to heal, O’Hara is hoping to miss only the Giants’ next game at Seattle this Sunday. His plan, barring any setbacks, according to the source, is to return for the Giants’ game against the Cowboys on Nov. 14.

 

Barring any setbacks, the sources said, O’Hara will not need surgery.

 

The injury apparently happened during the Giants’ win in Dallas on Oct. 24. During the bye week, O’Hara was sent to Charlotte to see Dr. Robert Anderson, a noted foot specialist. He returned with the foot in a protective boot and he was not able to practice today.

 

Coughlin did not offer many details on the injury, except to stress that doctors told him to use the word “mild”. He did, however, say that the injury “could be” a problem.

Johnson done for the year?

 

CB Bruce Johnson was not at practice today because he had arthroscopic surgery on his knee last week, Coughlin said. That injury also apparently occurred during the Giants’ win in Dallas.

 

Coughlin provided almost no details on Johnson’s surgery. When asked if Johnson would be placed on season-ending injured reserve, he said “I’m not ready to comment on that yet.”

And now the good news …

 

T Will Beatty did return to the practice field today for the first time since breaking his foot and did agility and footwork drills on the side.

 

“Today was a good sign,” he said. “The plan right now is to get me on the field as soon as possible - - like actually practicing with the team.”

 

Beatty said that he expects he’ll be able to return to practice within “a couple of weeks.” The trainers are being cautious because the bone is still healing.

 

“Each day we’re trying to progress slowly,” he said. “It’s within the month of November that I’m expected to be back out on the field.”

Reynaud’s still here

 

KR Darius Reynaud said he had no idea that the Giants had signed a new return man - - likely to take his place - - until he turned around at practice and saw Will Blackmon standing behind him as the team was lining up to practice kick returns. He didn’t seem to be particularly bothered by Blackmon’s presence, either.

 

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Reynaud said. “Bringing in a guy like that probably makes me better, probably makes him better.”

 

Reynaud said he hasn’t been told anything about whether he still has a role or not on the Giants. When Coughlin was asked if Reynaud still has a role, he said “Sure.” When asked what it was, Coughlin said “The role that he’s in right now.”

Hedgecock back to work … a little

 

FB Madison Hedgecock, who has missed the last three games with an injured hamstring, was at the Giants’ practice this morning and did “a little bit of testing” and some team drills, according to Coughlin.
