The P Posted August 14, 2012 Share Posted August 14, 2012 The Giants close their training camp in Albany today waking up to the news that one of their deepest units, their defensive line, has taken several hits. In a statement released by the team this morning, the Giants confirmed that defensive tackles Shaun Rogers (calf) and Martin Parker (back) and defensive end Justin Trattou (ankle/heel) were examined by team physician Dr. Russell Warren at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan on Monday. Rogers, who was also seen by vascular surgeon Dr. John Karwowaki, is being treated for a blood clot in his lower leg. Parker was diagnosed with a herniated disc in his back that will need surgery. He will miss his second straight season with an injury. Trattou, also seen by foot and ankle specialist Dr. David Levine, is still experiencing issues with his heel and is not expected back on the field for several weeks. Finally, defensive tackle Marvin Austin is being examined today at Hospital for Special Surgery for a back issue. Austin missed his rookie season last year with a torn pectoral. The afore-mentioned players join defensive tackle Chris Canty, who remains on PUP as he rehabs from knee surgery, on the sideline. There has been no word about when Canty might return to action. http://insidefootball.com/blog/archives/4931?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
