Excerpt: "In news that's big, though not surprising in the least bit, Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants)defensive tackle Chris Canty and tight end Travis Beckum have been placed on the reserve/physically-unable-to-perform list.
Both players, who are coming off knee surgeries, began training camp on the active/PUP list, which means they counted against the 90-man roster. Now, they won't count against the 75-man roster, a limit they needed to meet today by 4 p.m." Read more...

Damn! I didn't realize Canty's injury was THAT bad... Definitely going to need Hendricks. What's up with Austin's back?

He did tear his ACL in February which normally takes a fully 12 months to recover from the fact that the Giants kept him on PUP instead of IR means he is way ahead of schedule. You can't really blame him in this case.

Giants probably keep 5 DT now then they will have to cut on when Canty returns after week 6

Bummer about Canty. Wanted to see him up and ready. Rocky better light a fire under his big ***.....
Thought Bekum was going to get an injury settlement before camp even started. Dont get that one at all....

I doesn't hurt the Giants to keep him on PUP until week 6 to see what his status is then if he's not ready to go they can put him on IR. If he is ready to go they can use him or cut him at that point.

I realize that I just thought they would cut ties with him by now.

Canty is a big blow. Hopefully he is ready to roll later on.

I wouldn't bet on that. Remember, Justin Tuck started as a defensive tackle, plays there today as part of the 3rd down NASCAR package, and remains our best DL against the run.

Canty was a force inside so I hope he's all better come week 6

I was thinking they'd release Beckum. Maybe an injury settlement is still an option.

To me pup makes more sense...they can hang on to him for at least 6 more weeks and he doesn't count against 53....then at that point...who knows maybe because of injuries...they need him...if not they release him then or Ir him

it just leaves all their options open

Not blaming him for anything, but this dude never catches a break and never really gets a shot. His time is done.

What's up with Austin's back?What doesn't add up for me is that I distinctly remember Canty fussing at the Giants for putting him on the PUP at the beginning of camp. That is a big disconnect with what just happened. Does anyone else remember that? What's your take on it?

That's not his fault and he has played better lately. Canty going to PUP gives us a chance to see Hendricks develop.

why..because he got hurt playing the game his paid for?? Cant avoid injury all the time.....happens to most players at some point....
If they thought he was not worh it they would give him an injury settlement

He is worth it right now because their is no other good dts to pick up but nobody can say we did not overpay for an average talent on the defense line, he is not bad by any means but he is not a dominating player and we pay him like one. Im not discrediting him but we were a bit desperate when we signed him.

It's hard to question what each player on a capped 53 man roster gets payed when the team just won the superbowl.

It may be a bit of a challenge for Hendricks at the start, but it will be good for the team in the long term.

I believe this is also the case based on Kuhn getting a lot of time with the first D against the Bears. They may both make the team at least until Canty comes back.

Canty going to the PUP opens up another DT spot for the time being. I see us keeping both.

We've gotten very little out of the Giants on Canty's condition and recovery. That always makes me nervous.

I totally agree. The silence around this surgery and recovery speaks volumes. The D will miss Canty. He has played very well past 2-seasons. I have been worried about this since day 1. New guys have to step up. HUGE LOSS. Will miss his play he was a major contributor out there. And Forget Austin too. I dont see him contributing at all. Hope he proves me wrong.

I think this may not be such a bad thing we have a couple of solid veterans and by the time week 6 comes around we may need to have another DT. A big inside push guy could do wonders at that time of year!
