Will Beatty out 5 months with a Torn Pec

The New York Giants' offensive line woes continue.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Giants left tackle Will Beatty suffered a torn pectoral injury lifting weights on Tuesday. The veteran will undergo surgery, per a source who has spoken to the player.

 

The news is a huge blow to the Giants' offensive line. The injury is expected to knock Beatty out until late in the season.

Big Blue drafted Ereck Flowers No. 9 overall to be the left tackle of the future, but that timeline might get accelerated. Flowers or Justin Pugh will be in line to protect Eli Manning's blindside.

 

Flowers had been slotted to start on the right side, kicking Pugh to a guard spot. That plan now goes out the window.

The Giants have been attempting to bolster their offensive line the past several years with little luck. Last year guard Geoff Schwartz was signed to aid the interior, but played just two games due to injury.

Sucks to see this, but the guy plays on the soft side IMO.

 

He's had injury issues before. Always been more potential than production in my opinion. Had a terrible 2013, a decent if unspectacular 2014.

 

Never been a big fan, but hope he recovers.

Well....looks like Flowers will get a quick shot at left tackle and Pugh remain at right tackle.

 

Time for Jones to step up and win a starting guard spot

 

Michael Bamiro or Sean Donnelly might get a shot at some serious playing time. Both played tackle in college - both 6'8", but Donnelly needs to add about 40 lbs even though he's got better feet than Bamiro. Should make for some interesting competition. In the end though, they probably hand the backup tackle job to Marshall Newhouse. I really like Bamiro and think he'll be a future NFL starting tackle. He's still a little green though.

 

La'el Collins blew it by choosing the Cowboys who already had a great offensive line with positions that are set in stone.

 

Regardless, it really sucks. We were finally going to have a solid line and get off to a fast start for a change. Even when Beatty gets back, he'll probably play at 60 - 70% and baby his injury.

lol what?

 

He's going to be taken the job away from Leary's easily, I have no idea what you're talking about.

 

Smith, Martin, Federick, Collins, Free.

 

Fuck they have an O-line made up of "4" first round pick talent.

 

Romo better have the MVP trouphy on lock cause there's no way in hell he's gonna be sacked at all this year.

There are 3 free agents sitting there without a team. Offensive tackles: Anthony Collins (29), Ryan Harris (30), Jake Long (30).

 

Collins and Harris are career backups with issues - Collins is a penalty making machine, the book on him: "multiple penalties and inconsistent play"...also, he was with Jerome Simpson when they found a shitload of pot (6-8 lbs) and various drug paraphernalia. Can't see TC wanting anything to do with this guy. Harris fits more of a zone blocking type tackle who's been on 5 teams who all cut him after a year or two.

 

Jake Long makes sense. His problem: two ACL tears in two years. He wants to play somewhere - probably for a lot of money, but he's a walking injury waiting to happen. If we could sign him on a 1-year contract (doubtful) for cheap...he'd be perfect to play LT until Beatty returns. Beatty will miss 6 or 7 games and Long would be good for about that many games before breaking down with his next injury.

OG is more of the need. I think Pugh goes to LT and they keep the plan of Flowers at RT

I don't know, we've picked up Jones and Hart is huge and nasty.

 

What we have now:

 

Left Tackle

 

65 W. Beatty

73 M. Newhouse

70 T. Kropog

71 S. Donnelly

 

Left Guard

 

67 J. Pugh

75 B. Mosley

60 A. Gettis

 

Center

 

70 W. Richburg

61 D. Reynolds

69 B. Jones

 

Right Guard

 

74 G. Schwartz

77 J. Jerry

62 E. Herman

68 B. Hart

 

Right Tackle

 

76 E. Flowers

64 M. Bamiro

63 E. Cleary

------------------------------------

 

Top free agents available (from PFT http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/04/10/pfts-2015-all-unemployed-team/)

 

Offensive tackles: Anthony Collins (29), Ryan Harris (30), Jake Long (30).

 

Collins can play left tackle, which helps his value, but he’s been a third tackle most of his career, and he disappointed in his lone season with Tampa Bay. Harris, an undersized right tackle, has made 54 NFL starts. Long comes with considerable durability concerns.

 

Offensive guards: Justin Blalock (31), Rob Sims (31), Mike McGlynn (30), Davin Joseph (31).

 

Every guard on this list started double-digit games a season ago, so teams have some options.

 

Center: Chris Myers (33), Samson Satele (30), Lyle Sendelin (31), Scott Wells (34).

 

Myers, Satele, Sendelin, Wells and Brian De La Puente all have ample experience, adding to the glut of serviceable unsigned players at the offensive line position.

Dan Connolly(32) formerly of the Pats is still available. I would take a flyer there

This is a blessing in disguise, I'll call it right now. It gives an out on Beatty's contract situation and exorbitant pay and it lets Flowers get some quality starts early.

:whistling:

 

 

How does one tear a pec lifting in offseason workouts, anyway? He must be made of jelly.

Oh well... I guess its incurable cancer for the Giants...
