ESPN New York's Dan Graziano considers Geoff Schwartz the favorite for the Giants' right guard job.
Schwartz made his only two starts at right tackle after returning from I.R. last season. He's been an interior lineman the majority of his career. Justin Pugh is currently penciled in opposite LT Will Beatty, but could be moved to left guard if the Giants use a high draft pick at right tackle. Mar 21 - 6:31 PM

Giants G/T Geoff Schwartz agreed to restructure his contract.

His base salary has been reduced from $3.675 million to $1.675 million. The other $2 million was likely converted into a bonus. The move frees up $950,000 in cap space. Schwartz struggled with injuries last season but started at right tackle for the G-Men when he was healthy.
Mar 18 - 8:50 AM

Giants placed G/T Geoff Schwartz on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

The Newark Star-Ledger reported earlier Tuesday that Schwartz was feeling "pretty good" after being carted off the field in Sunday's loss, but the G-Men must have determined he wouldn't be able to contribute in the next few weeks. There are just 26 days left in the regular season. Schwartz spent the first 11 weeks of the season on injured reserve/designated to return with a toe injury, and will close the book on 2014 having played just 93 snaps. Going on 29, Schwartz is signed through 2017. On the books for $4.15 million in 2015, he should be back with the G-Men.

Giants G/T Geoff Schwartz (ankle) is expected to return this season.

The Giants placed three players on injured reserve Tuesday, but Schwartz wasn't one of them. Schwartz got carted off the field in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, but must be staring at little more than a 1-2 week sprain.

Giants RT Geoff Schwartz was carted off with a sprained left ankle in Sunday's Week 13 game against Jacksonville.

Schwartz just returned last week, and could now be done for the season. With Justin Pugh and Adam Snyder also sidelined, it's another blow to the Giants' offensive line. James Brewer has replaced Schwartz at right tackle.

Giants LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is active for Sunday night's Week 12 game against the Cowboys.

Schwartz will make his debut with the Giants. He'll start at right tackle, with Adam Snyder starting over LG Weston Richburg. The Giants inactives are OG Brandon Mosley, CB Mike Harris, OT Justin Pugh, LB Jacquian Williams, OL Dallas Reynolds, DE Kerry Wynn, and DT Cullen Jenkins.

Giants activated LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) from injured reserve/designated to return.

Schwartz will immediately slide back in as a starter, but it's unclear if he'll send LG Weston Richburg or RG John Jerry to the bench. Both have been amongst the league's worst guards this season. It's possible Schwartz will take over at left guard, sending Richburg to the right and Jerry to the bench. Schwartz's return is a nice boost for the nose-diving G-Men.

The Giants will not activate LG Geoff Schwartz from injured reserve-designated for return before Monday night's game against the Colts.

Schwartz was eligible to return from his toe dislocation this week, but isn't ready. Schwartz is the Giants' best blocker when healthy. His return should give the offensive line a lift down the stretch, but it's still unclear when that will happen. Rookie Weston Richburg has struggled in Schwartz's absence despite oddly making some irrelevant midseason All-Pro teams.

Giants placed G Geoff Schwartz (toe) on injured reserve with a designation to return.

Schwartz, arguably the Giants' best offensive lineman, is now out until at least Week 9. 49ers castoff Adam Snyder has been brought in as depth, but this remains a major concern heading into the season. Eli Manning projects to be under a ton of pressure from the Lions' supremely talented front four on Monday night.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports "it's likely, but not certain" the Giants will use their short-term injured reserve spot on LG Geoff Schwartz (toe).

If so, Schwartz would be out until Week 9. Not good. Schwartz doesn't need surgery and was just classified as week-to-week by the team earlier this week. Reports on Schwartz's timetable have been all over the map. The Giants need him badly. We can't see them using the short-term I.R. spot on Schwartz if he's going to be healthy well before November. He's their best lineman.

Giants LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) doesn't need surgery and is considered week-to-week.

Big news for the Giants. After it was initially feared Schwartz may miss the season, he'll be in a walking boot for 7-10 days and is considered week-to-week. Schwartz characterized it as a "minor setback." He's still extremely doubtful for Week 1, but could be back sometime during the season's first month.
Tue, Aug 26, 2014 09:38:00 AM

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan reports Giants LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) will miss "at least six weeks" and "possibly [the entire] season."

This meshes with what has been reported following Schwartz's exit from Friday's preseason game with a dislocated toe. Raanan at least gives us a bit of a loose timetable. Schwartz is arguably the Giants' best lineman. His loss for any amount of time would be a big one. With Schwartz out, the G-Men would likely plug in rookie Weston Richburg between LT Will Beatty and C J.D. Walton.
Mon, Aug 25, 2014 08:17:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Giants LG Geoff Schwartz is consulting with a foot specialist following an MRI on his dislocated toe.

Rapoport said, "It does not sound good." Depending on the where the toe is dislocated, Schwartz could miss anywhere from a few weeks to the entire season. Rapoport's comments indicate it is closer to the latter. The injury is a huge blow to the Giants' already shaky offensive line. Rookie Weston Richburg should slot in at left guard with Schwartz sidelined.

Giants LG Geoff Schwartz was forced from Friday's preseason game against the Jets with a dislocated toe.

Schwartz couldn't put any weight on his right foot as he was loaded onto a cart. A toe issue is obviously preferable to a foot or ankle, but it could still be a long-term injury. It's the last thing the Giants' beleaguered offensive line needs. On paper, Schwartz is the G-Men's second-best lineman after RT Justin Pugh. Eli Manning was running for his life even before Schwartz's injury.

New Giants OL Geoff Schwartz expects to start at left guard.

Schwartz can play both guard spots and right tackle, and reports have been all over the place on which position he's expected to play for his new team. That will be settled on the practice field this summer. The Giants have more moves to make on the offensive line. Wherever Schwartz plays, he'll be an asset.
