Giants Injury Update: Walter Thurmond out for season with torn pec

By on 9/16/2014 05:15:00 PM

The New York Giants have seen better days. The team announced that Walter Thurmond is out for the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Thurmond was the team's number two cornerback.

The Giants have to find someone to replace Thurmond, and that might not be as hard as people think. Thurmond had allowed 7 of 8 balls thrown his way this year, obviously not an impressive statistic for a player of Thurmond's expectations. Expect the replacement to be Trumaine McBride. He'll be covering ths slot from now on.

The Giants' secondary was supposed to be one of the top groups in the league, especially after signing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond. The expectations were set high, but the results just aren't there. The team is 0-2, not just because of DMC or Thurmond, but it appears that the attempted procedure of retooling this Giants team is an absolute failure.

The defense and the offense are mediocre. Eli Manning looks lost and can't come to grips with the new system. So where do they go from here? Well, Tom Coughlin still believes in his team, or at least that's what he says, so I guess they have that going for them.

This week will be a big test because if they can't beat the Texans at home, it might be full on pandemonium in New York.
