Kevin Boothe To Miss Four Months

Most of the injury news coming out of the Meadowlands during the current group of OTAs for our New York Giants is positive.

There are a couple of down notes, though.

  • Reserve offensive lineman Kevin Boothe will miss four months after suffering a torn pectoral muscle working out earlier this week. That timeline means Boothe would not be available until at least the end of September. You have to think that Boothe could be headed toward Injured Reserve, or maybe even a release with an injury settlement.
  • Tight end Kevin Boss will undergo an arthroscopic procedure to debride his right ankle on Monday. Recovery time for the procedure, which will be performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley of HSS, is 4-6 weeks.

    Debridement, by the way, is cutting away dead tissue from a wound. Yuck! And, yes, I looked it up.

Andre Brown (achilles tendon surgery) and Jay Alford (knee surgery) are reportedly participating. As are Brandon Jacobs (knee), Justin Tuck (shoulder), fullback Madison Hedgecock (shoulder), center Shaun O’Hara (elbow), guard Rich Seubert (shoulder), wide receiver Mario Manningham (shoulder) and linebacker Gerris Wilkinson (wrist).

Not participating are Kenny Phillips (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (both feet and one ankle), wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (wrist/toe) and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (shoulder).
