Geoff Schwartz will be in a walking boot for 7-10 days, after which he will begin a rehab program, the Giants announced.
“After that, he will be evaluated on a week to week basis regarding his ability to return to football activities,” the team said.
It was previously feared that Schwartz could be lost for the season.
“This is just a minor setback,” Schwartz said in a release. “I plan on attacking the rehab program so I can get back on the field as soon as possible with my teammates and help us win games.”
