When you talk about the New York Giants, you are generally talking about tough, hard-nosed football with players who have a “no quit” kind of attitude. Cornerback Justin Tryon is a perfect example of that.
Head coach Tom Coughlin revealed to the media this afternoon that Tyron played more than two full quarters in yesterday’s 20-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins with a “serious broken arm.” Included in those two and a half quarters of play was an impressive tackle on Reggie Bush following a punt late in the fourth quarter, that net -4 yards and kept Miami pinned deep in their own territory.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that Tryon is currently in surgery and is likely out for the remainder of the season, adding yet another name to the lengthy list of season-ending injuries suffered by Big Blue this year.
Tryon was signed by the Giants in early October. He had previously played for the Washington Redskins and Indianapolis Colts.
UPDATE: The Giants have officially placed Tryon on Injured Reserve.
