Geoff Schwartz will likely be placed on short-term injured reserve (Jones, Aug. 29).
If so, Schwartz would be able to return in Week 9.
Schwartz dislocated his toe in the preseason game against the Jets. He will be in a walking boot for another week, 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.”
