New York Giants starting left guard Geoff Schwartz and wide receiver Marcus Harris will be out for at least several weeks after suffering injuries Friday night vs. the New York Jets. Head coach Tom Coughlin said both will be out "a long while probably.

Coughlin said that until Schwartz visits Dr. Anderson "there is nothing I can say."

"Losing Geoff is a major disappointment," Coughlin said. "Let's not jump to conclusions. Let's see when the evaluation is completed what the length of time is."

When Schwartz was injured Friday night rookie Weston Richburg replaced him at left guard. Coughlin mentioned both Richburg and John Jerry as options to start at guard in Schwartz's place.

"We continue. We've done various experiments with people at different spots," Coughlin said. "We'll just continue to operate in that fashion."

Coughlin said Richburg "did OK last night."

"He did OK last night. He’s a talented young man who is in a position where he’s going to have to help us."

The shoulder injury Harris suffered could impact whether or not he makes the final roster.

Coughlin said he has no idea if the rookie wide receiver will practice this week, but "they say progress is being made." The Giants first-round pick has yet to play in the preseason.
