New York Giants center Jim Cordle has a partially torn patellar tendon in his left knee, according to a variety of tweets from beat writers this afternoon. Cordle, per those reports, will be re-evaluated on Thursday and still hopes to play Sunday vs. the Washington Redskins.
Cordle, an undrafted free agent, has been with the Giants since 2010. He got a chance to play this season due to injuries to starting center David Baas and starting guard Chris Snee. He has started seven games this season. Newsday's Tom Rock reported that Cordle "probably needs offseason surgery."
Without Cordle, left guard Kevin Boothe moves to center Sunday vs. the Dallas Cowboys and third-year man James Brewer filled in at left guard.
Cornerback Trumaine McBride suffered a re-occurrence of a groin injury late in Sunday's game. No word yet on the severity of McBride's injury. Jason Pierre-Paul played only 27 snaps Sunday due to his shoulder injury. No update yet on that, either.
