The New York Giants have announced that starting center Jim Cordle will be placed on season-ending injured reserve with a patella tendon injury. Cordle was replacing veteran David Baas who suffered a season ending knee injury in week 7. Kevin Boothe will take over the quarterback exchanges full-time, with reserve James Brewer inheriting Boothe’s left guard responsibilities. 25-year old practice squad guard Stephen Goodin, an undrafted FA from Nebraska-Kearney, will take Cordle’s spot on the active roster. The injury will hamper the Giants from a depth perspective more than anything else. Cordle posted a -5.4 overall rating in ten active games according to Pro Football Focus, and the Jints ran the ball with great success on Sunday in Boothe’s 34 run blocking snaps.
OL Stephen Goodin has been activated from the practice squad to take Cordle's place on the roster. #NYG
