LB Pierce out indefinitely with injury
By Michael Eisen, Giants.com

NOVEMBER 20, 2009

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Giants middle linebacker Antonio Pierce was diagnosed with a bulging disc in his neck this afternoon and will be sidelined indefinitely, according to the team's medical staff.

Pierce underwent an MRI today at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan and was examined by team physician Dr. Russell Warren and Dr. Frank Camissa, Chief of the Spinal Surgical Services at HSS.

Pierce originally suffered a burner in the Arizona game on October 25 and experienced very little discomfort until practice this week, at which point the team's medical staff scheduled this afternoon's MRI.

"I'm shocked with what I heard from the doctors this afternoon," said Pierce. "I had no idea that what happened a few weeks ago could keep me off the field. I didn't think it was that serious. I'm going to do everything the doctors tell me to do so I can get back out on the field as soon as possible.

This is disappointing for Pierce as he had been starting to play well

This could be a career ending injury.



from a tem point of view, I am reasonably comfortable that Blackburn and Goff can get the job done inside.
