The Giant career of Clint Sintim has come to an end. The Giants drafted Sintim in the second round of 2009, and Clint suffered his first knee injury in December of 2010, and then again in 2011. Sintim was on the physically unable to perform list and has failed his physical. Along with Sintim the Giants have waived DE Justin Trattou. Justin had suffered ankle and heel injuries early in camp after playing in 6 games last season. The Giants injuries continue to pile up along the D-Line, a part of their defense that is considered a great strength.
The Giants then signed DB Laron Scott, and DT Bobby Skinner. Scott is a CB/ return specialist out of Georgia Southern, while Bobby Skinner listed at 6’3″ and 300 lbs is a rookie from local Montclair State.
I believe the injury to Trattou will hurt the most in the long run. Justin had taken on the Dave Tollefson role along the defensive line and now that rotating depth position is open again. The Giants need to either get healthy quickly or have one of the young kids step up. If either Rocky Bernard or Chris Canty returns healthy soon, then the concern is not so great. This has now become the most interesting spot to watch come Saturday night when the Giants face the Jets and their running attack.
