David Baas has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Baas had missed three games with a neck ailment before the Vikings game, where he injured his knee.
“It’s very frustrating, to say the least,” Baas said in a statement. “You work so hard. We said we can’t catch a break.”
The Giants did not immediately fill Baas roster spot. The veteran center, who is in the third year of a five-year deal, was injured on the last play of the Giants’ opening drive Monday night vs Minnesota.
“The doctors showed me that a linebacker whipped into my leg or something like that,” Baas said. “I didn’t even know that it was almost a touchdown catch (by Hakeem Nicks). I had no idea, because I got hit and obviously went down to the ground and then got back up and limped off…..You kind of know right away when you get that feeling. I was hoping it wasn’t anything worse, but it’s definitely bad enough to where it’s come to this.”
The team also re-signed LB Darin Drakeford to the practice squad.

The team will go with Jim Cordle at center for now. Cordle had spelled Baas the previous three games and again on Monday night. The coaches and Eli are both pleased with Cordle’s steady improvement.
The Giants could possibly bring back veteran center Dallas Reynolds, who they signed and released recently.
