    Not surprised. That was a major injury he suffered I the Super Bowl. He may not be ready until the start of the 2013 season.

    Team took their physicals today didn't they? I wonder if he's further back in rehab than hoped.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a type of situation where you have to waive/injured a player in the offseason to put them on IR (much like we had to do with Chad Jones in previous years)?

    Either way, I don't think we'll have to worry about a team picking him up off waivers/as a FA when he likely won't play this season. If his knee checks out he may end up being a Giant in '13.

    Yes, it appears he didn't pass the physical. Too bad.

    yea I think they will, this will allow them to have the freedom to do what they want but also sign him back for cheaper etc. It sucks and unlucky but it happens...now the question is who do we sign to take his place....

    there are 4 tight ends on the roster...what makes you think anyone will be signed other than possibly bodies for camp?
