After losing G Chris Snee to retirement, Giants HC Tom Coughlin can’t afford to lose many more starters this early in training camp.
After being signed as an insurance policy in case MLB Jon Beason went out, Jameel McClain entered New York Giants training camp as a possible starter after Beason suffered a foot fracture in June. But the replacement may need replacing himself after suffering an injury of his own during training camp on Tuesday.
McClain was carted off the Giants field after suffering a foot injury during practice. Head coach Tom Coughlin told NFL Network reporter Kim Jones that McClain is still being evaluated.
McClain played with the Ravens from 2008 to 2013 after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse. In 2013, McClain suffered a career threatening spinal cord injury that caused him to miss 10 months of football. He received a ring when the Ravens won Superbowl XLVII and returned to football in October 2013.
McClain signed with the Giants on March 13, 2014.
Earlier this week the Giants lost their starting Offensive Guard Chris Snee when he announced his retirement from football.
