Ramses Barden's Recovery Hits A Snag

Ramses Barden will need a second procedure done to "clean out" his injured leg, according to the Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo. The wide receiver had surgery to repair a broken ankle and ligament damage after suffering a season-ending injury.

From Garafolo, Giants General Manager Jerry Reese said "It’s nothing we’re alarmed about.”

Barden, the 6-foot-6, 230-pound receiver from Cal Poly, has caught just six passes in nine NFL games over his first two NFL seasons. He has been unable to force his way into regular playing time with the talented group of wide receivers the Giants possess.

If he can get healthy in time for 2011 Barden could push his way to the No. 3 receiver slot. With the health of Steve Smith in question, Barden's primary competition for snaps could come from Domenik Hixon, who will be returning after missing 2010 with a knee injury. Of course, Barden has to get himself healthy first.
