East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Giants announced Tuesday that they have received good news regarding starting left guard Geoff Schwartz and his toe injury.
Schwartz will remain in a walking boot for approximately 7-10 days and then begin a rehabilitation program. After that, he will be evaluated on a week-to- week basis. Schwartz had his dislocated right big toe examined Monday by Dr. Robert Anderson.
"This is just a minor setback," said Schwartz. "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."
Schwartz suffered the injury during last Friday's preseason game against the Jets. It was previously feared that Schwartz could be lost for the season.
The Giants open the regular season Sept. 8 at Detroit.
