INJURY UPDATE: OL Geoff Schwartz has been ruled out with a fractured lower leg. #NYGvsWAS— New York Giants (@Giants) November 29, 2015
Schwartz is the third member of the Giants' starting offensive line to be out. They began the game missing center Weston Richburg (ankle) and guard Justin Pugh (concussion). The Giants have John Jerry at left guard, Dallas Reynolds at center and rookie seventh-round pick Bobby Hart at right guard.
Schwartz played in only two games last season, suffering a toe injury that landed him on short-term IR and then a broken ankle. He is in the second year of a four-year, $16.8 million contract
The only remaining offensive lineman on the bench for the Giants is Emmett Cleary.
Schwartz is holding out hope this his season isn't over.
Fracture is an ugly word. Might not be season ending. I hope not. We will see. https://t.co/uCqczSGHHE— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) November 29, 2015
