Giants signed kicker, Shayne Graham, Cruz on IR

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Sat Oct 16, 2010 1:00 pm

Due to Lawrence Tyne's sprained ankle, the Giants went out and signed Shayne Graham just in case Tynes can't go on Sunday.
To make room on the roster, wr, Victor Cruz was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Once he was one of the leagues most accurate kickers but could never kick when it mattered most. I like the signing though, a little added pressure on tynes if he does well doesn't hurt either.

Sad news on Cruz.

Agree on both.

Tynes looked better, more confident perhaps last week with Rosenfels holding but before last week still looked shaky to me.

Depending on how Graham kicks (if he kicks), it might be Grahams job to lose. Much like a couple years ago when Carney stole Tyne's job for the year.

The Cruz injury is a shame but fortunately we have better options at the position.

Cruz's hamstring must have been a little worse than expected.

I guess we keep two kickers for the season.

Good news for Tynes, bad news for Giants fans. Graham was terrible on kick-offs against the Lions.
