New York Giants Offensive Lineman Has No Timetable To Return

The New York Giants have been through a full blown injury crisis this off-season, and with just a few weeks to go until the regular season begins, it's something that they need to get ahead of. Unfortunately for them, left guard Shane Lemieux, who injured his foot in the pre-season opener against the New England Patriots hasn't practiced since, and according to the latest update, has no timetable to return to the field.

“Don’t expect him anytime soon,” Giants coach Brian Daboll said, via Art Stapleton of If Lemieux can't return by the regular season, the Giants will need to make a decision on whether to keep him on the 53-man roster, meaning he can return whenever he's healthy, or put him on the PUP list, which would guarantee that he has to miss the first four games of the season.

Even worse news for the Giants is that his backup hasn't practiced since the first pre-season game either, and the backup right guard has recently missed time with an elbow injury, so Daniel Jones may be in some trouble in the season opener. There are tackles on this team that can fill in for now, but if Lemieux and the Giants have no timetable for his return, they may potentially need to look outside the organization for help if they believed they can win the NFC East in 2022.
