Shane Lemieux likely dodged a bullet
On Thursday New York Giants’ starting offensive guard Shane Lemieux suffered a lower leg injury during practice and was carted off.
Now that it’s the next day, we know that it seems as though Lemieux avoided a serious injury, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.
Giants’ head coach Joe Judge also confirmed that it looks like Lemieux should be fine.
“Worst case scenario looks to be avoided,” Judge said.
For now the Giants will have to go forward with Zach Fulton and Kenny Wiggins until Lemieux is able to get back on the practice field.
New York’s offensive line was shaky to begin with, but with Lemieux things really look murky. They might have to look into adding a veteran free agent like David DeCastro. Another option might be to have veteran Nate Solder move from right tackle inside to guard because right now he likely won’t beat out Matthew Peart for the starting right tackle spot.
