Boley has hip surgery

Michael Boley, signed as a free agent to bolster the New York Giants' outside linebacking group, has undergone arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn hip labrum, the team announced today.

Boley will need 8-10 weeks to recover, which means he will miss a significant amount of training camp -- if not all of it.

This is a serious blow to the Giants revamped defense. Boley, signed from the Atlanta Falcons, is being counted on to be the playmaking outside linebacker the Giants did not have last season.

Missing the majority of camp won't help Boley's adjustment to being with a new team and learning a new system.

This also comes as a surprise to me. I can't recall any indication during the recent mini-camp that Boley was hurt.

The Giants also announced the signings of third-round pick Ramses Barden and fifth-round pick Rhett Bomar. They join Stoney Woodson and DeAndre Wright as draft picks who have signed.

To make room on the roster for Barden and Bomar, tight end George Wrighster (bummer!!) and rookie offensive lineman Mike Fladell were released.
