Jay Alford will miss the rest of the season with knee injury

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Fri Sep 04, 2009 9:55 pm

New York Giants backup defensive tackle Jay Alford will miss the season with a knee injury.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Friday that Alford was examined by doctors and they decided he needed surgery to repair two ligaments he tore in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears about two weeks ago.

Alford was having an excellent camp and would have likely gotten plenty of playing time behind starters Barry Cofield and Fred Robbins.

The injury also caused one other change. Alford was the snapper on extra points and field goals. Long snapper Zak DeOssie has taken over both jobs.

Not that surprised really, but a real shame for Alford who was looking really good this offseason.

At least it will give him the opportunity to get completely healthy and be 100% ready for 2010
