Left guard Geoff Schwartz (dislocated toe) is being sent to see a foot specialist in Charlotte, N.C., to have an MRI and be re-evaluated.
The Giants are hoping he’s only going to miss about a month, including the regular season opener Sept. 8 at Detroit, but fear it might be a season-ending injury. Coach Tom Coughlin is preparing for the possibility.
“We have done various experiments with people at different spots and [Weston] Richburg has been in there,” Coughin said in a conference call Saturday. “John Jerry has been in there now and played substantially (Friday). So we have had the chance to maneuver people around.
“Dallas Reynolds has played guard as well, so we will just continue to operate in that fashion and hopefully there will be no setback and we can hopefully continue.”
Schwartz (6 foot 6, 343 pounds) is in his seventh NFL season, his first with the Giants after signing as a free agent from Kansas City. He was injured late in the second quarter against the Jets while pass blocking.
Wide receiver Marcus Harris confirmed he has an AC shoulder joint injury that will require a 3-to-4-week recovery period (ESPN, Aug. 23).
“Hopefully my camp performance will be enough to keep me around,” Harris told reporter Dan Graziano.
Defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (leg) and cornerback Zack Bowman (triceps) also left Friday’s game with injuries, but Coughlin did not provide details about them.
