Giants TE Boss out 4-6 weeks after injuring ankle

Bad injury news for the Giants: Tight end Kevin Boss will be out 4-6 weeks after injuring his right ankle. He will have arthroscopic surgery on Monday. The procedue is to “debride his right ankle”.

Additionally, Kevin Boothe will be out at least 4 months after tearing a pectoral muscle. Boothe got injured while working out. He will have surgery next week. Expect this to be the last of Boothe on the team. With Boothe not going to be able to be ready until at least September, the Giants will look to find a replacement at backup guard/tackle. Rookie Mitch Petrus could be an option

    i wouldnt be so sure about this being the end of boothe…that’s a ridiculous assumption. the team obviously likes him, and other blogs said he will be ready approximately wk 1. hes their 6th best lineman…as someone says, “not so fast my friend”

    I agree with mike. If anything he will be placed on the PUP list. He is very valuble to their dpth.
