    Giants' RB Da'Rel Scott undergoes knee surgery

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/17/...-knee-surgery/

    Excerpt: "
    New York Giants backup running back Da'Rel Scott was at the Hospital for Special Surgery on Tuesday receiving surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee. He is expected to miss several weeks. The Giants have not yet made a roster move.

    Scott has only had six carries so far through 2012 for a grand total of nine yards. With Ahmad Bradshaw, Andre Brown, and David Wilson ahead of him on the depth chart, Scott has seen very limited action on offense. With that,David Wilson's explosive kick off returns have negated his value to the Giants on special teams. Although Scott has breakaway speed, he has yet to showcase a physical style of play.

    Does this give Reese wiggle room for Canty or Will Hill to return?

    Scott was a waste of a roster spot anyway. Hope recovers quickly though.

    I'm not sure that's true. He finds himself behind other players who are developing faster. But, assuming you're right, he can hit IR and save us someone who can be a potential benefit for us this season.

    no doubt Canty...Sash or Petrus when Hill is done with suspension

    I don't agree. depth is a wonderful problem to have. even if his pass blocking wasn't the best.

    He is a very good ST player, and has utility in his experience at WR, HB, KR, and PR. Its nearly impossible to find depth players that are any MORE useful than Scott.

    Well, now we know why they brought back Joe Martinek and put him on the PS.
