Safety Tyler Sash returned to the New York Giants on Monday for the first time since September 2nd following a four-game suspension for the use of Adderall. Upon arrival, his first duty was to clear the "cobwebs" out of his locker that had been comically placed there courtesy of punter Steve Weatherford and linebacker Spencer Paysinger. But despite the ribbing, Sash was thrilled to be back.
“I’m ready,” Sash said. “I’ve been sitting at home. Besides working out, I’ve been watching football trying to be around football. I went to high school practices. I went to seventh-grade football games. I just wanted to be around football."
Sash returns at a dire time for the Giants, who were already struggling with injuries in the secondary prior to the loss of Kenny Phillips. And although Big Blue has a roster exemption for Sash that allows them to practice with 54 men this week and keep 54 men on the roster until Monday in the event that he doesn't play against the Cleveland Browns, they're not likely to use it very long. They need reinforcements, so it wouldn't be shocking if they made another roster move allowing Sash to play on Sunday.
"Probably get my chance to go Sunday with some injuries, Kenny getting banged up," Sash said. "We’re not healthy anywhere across the board and in the defensive backfield, so I’m excited to get back.”
In 16 games as a rookie, Sash collected 17 tackles and forced two fumbles. He showed significant improvement at the safety position as the season wore on, and was a very valuable Special Teams contributor.
