The New York Giants have waived cornerback Bruce Johnson with injury designation due to a shoulder injury, as the team continues to finalize the 53-man roster that will take the field next Wednesday against Dallas.
In week three of the preseason, Johnson briefly took the field with the starting defense after Prince Amukamara suffered a high-ankle sprain. Although Johnson was victimized by Brandon Marshal almost immediately after he went into the game, he still could have been a contributing member to the defensive backfield in the absence of Terrell Thomas, Jayron Hosley, and Amukamara.
For the Giants, this means that Michael Coe and Justin Tryon will be heavily relied upon in week one. It seems as if the team may carry a few injured corners on the roster, in hopes that they can skate by until Prince, T2, and Hosley return. Once the Giants get back to full strength, the team will once again posses a deep secondary capable of keeping up with the NFC's elite.
However, for Bruce Johnson, this is a tough break for a guy who has said, and done all the right things in his time with Big Blue.
