The New York Giants returned to the field on Wednesday for their second practice of mandatory mini-camp. And as was the case on Tuesday, guard Justin Pugh was not participating due to an undisclosed injury.
Already thin at the position, the Giants took several more blows when two other offensive linemen went down.
First, left tackle Ereck Flowers, who had remained in East Rutherford this offseason and looked to be in tremendous shape, appeared hobbled during team drills and was eventually replaced by Chad Wheeler.
After practice, offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said Flowers was just “sore,” but his limp was visible.
Only minutes after Flowers left the field, back-up offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, who was signed during free agency, appeared to suffer a more serious injury to his elbow/shoulder. He, too, was pulled off the field and looked to be in significant pain.
With Fluker in the training room, Adam Gettis took over his spot at guard.
Although the injury to Flowers does not appear to be overly serious, the injury to Fluker very well might be. He walked off under his own power, but was not moving his arm at all.
The Giants can ill afford injuries to their offensive line, particularly at the left tackle position given that they did little to address unit this offseason. They already faced questions coming into mini-camp, and those questions will loom even larger if either injury is of a serious nature.

Any word on Fluker?

 

Also, I'd like to petition Sportswrath to have DJ Flukers name permanently changed to his actual birth name, "Danny Lee Jesus."

 

Ya know I think the lack of word is word enough. Most Likely: Fluker needs surgery will miss preseason so out of the mix on making this a better offensive line. I'm betting write now he is seeking a second opinion but any impact Fluker may have had is done. John Fucking Turnstile Jerry for one more fucking year.

I would like to think our luck with injuries is a little better than the Mets' luck but you're probably right.
