Giants will be short-handed on offensive line

The New York Giants will be short-handed on the offensive line Sunday when they face the Cleveland Browns. Justin Pugh (knee), Brett Jones (calf) and Marshall Newhouse (knee) have all been ruled out of Sunday’s game.

Pugh, who returned to practice earlier this week after missing two games, had a “slight setback,” according to head coach Ben McAdoo. The Giants will evaluate Pugh again next week.

Newhouse injured his knee during last week’s game, but returned to action after missing a few plays.

That means that journey Adam Gettis would appear to be next in line at left guard for the Giants. Gettis is also questionable, however, with a calf injury. The only other available offensive linemen for the Giants are Will Beatty and Shane McDermott.

“We're very confident in the players that we have up that will be able to go out and play good offensive football,” McAdoo said.

Also questionable for the Giants are defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (knee), wide receiver Roger Lewis Jr. (concussion) and running back Orleans Darkwa (lower leg).
