The cart got here out to get Shane Lemieux and the Giants’ beginning left guard was pushed off the apply subject Thursday.
It’s a knee subject for Lemieux, and he was present process additional analysis to find out the extent of the injury.
Identical to that, the youth motion the Giants are going with on their offensive line may very well be in flux. Lemieux, 24, began the ultimate 9 video games as a rookie final season, incomes excessive marks from the teaching workers for his toughness and skill to dam within the operating sport. The metrics on him as a go blocker have been poor, however the Giants felt strongly sufficient about Lemieux’s potential that Will Hernandez was moved to the best aspect to play proper guard, opening up a everlasting spot for Lemieux.
The Giants didn’t make any strikes of nice significance within the offseason to bolster their offensive line — they didn’t take an offensive lineman within the NFL Draft and they didn’t signal a starting-caliber participant in free company. They did signal Zach Fulton, 29, who has 90 NFL begins on his resume, and so they even have Kenny Wiggins, 32, an eight-year veteran with 38 profession begins. Wiggins was on the Giants’ apply squad late final season. There have been additions as depth items.
Shedding Lemieux would check the depth. He sat along with his arms crossed, with no wraps or ice on his legs, as he was carted off the sphere on the second apply of coaching camp. He was changed by Wiggins, who took the left guard spot with the beginning unit for the following sequence of drills.
Lemieux is a fifth-round draft select of Oregon.
