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. Aug 29 - 11:10 AM

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.

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.

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.

The Giants are expected to use newly signed Geoff Schwartz at right tackle.

It sounds like they'll be moving 2013 first-rounder Justin Pugh to left tackle, replacing 2013 flop Will Beatty. This is just a tentative plan, however, as positions will be decided on the practice field in training camp. If Beatty takes a step forward, there's a chance Pugh could move to left guard.
Mar 11 - 8:26 PM

Giants agreed to terms with G/T Geoff Schwartz, formerly of the Chiefs.

The Giants seemed to be the favorites to land Schwartz all along. Their only real competition was the Rams, and anybody would choose New York over St. Louis. Schwartz will likely play left guard for the G-Men. He can also play right guard and right tackle. Chris Snee and Justin Pugh will man the right side of the offensive line. The Giants now need to find a center to replace David Baas.
Mar 11 - 5:11 PM's Mike Silver reports a "battle is shaping up" between the Giants and Rams for free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

Both teams have extreme needs along their offensive lines, particularly in the interior. That's where Schwartz is best utilized. Schwartz can play both guard spots and right tackle. Schwartz was a one-year bargain in free agency last season, but that won't be the case this year.
Mar 11 - 11:45 AM

The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Giants are one of three teams interested in free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

The Rams are believed to also be in the mix. Schwartz isn't going to be back in Kansas City and is easily the top free-agent guard available. The Giants love versatility in their lineman. Schwartz can play both guard spots and right tackle.
Mar 11 - 10:17 AM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams are showing interest in free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

A mauler in the run game, Schwartz stands 6-foot-6, 340 and can play both guard and right tackle, though his best position is inside. The Rams appear to have given up on re-signing Rodger Saffold. Schwartz looks like their "Plan B."
Mar 10 - 3:56 PM

The Chiefs met with free agent RG Geoff Schwartz at the Combine.

Schwartz, 27, was one of the most effective guards in the league last season despite making only eight starts. He's expressed interest in returning with the Chiefs, but it remains to be seen if they're willing to meet his asking price. "Schwartz loved it in Kansas City and would love to come back," agent Deryk Gilmore confirmed. "He wants to be paid like a starter."
Feb 28 - 9:08 PM

According to, the Giants are planning to attack the guard position in free agency.

The Giants have holes all over their offensive line, including at guard where Chris Snee is coming off hip surgery, David Diehl retired, Kevin Boothe is an unrestricted free agent and James Brewer has not performed well enough to project as a starter. Geoff Schwartz is our top guard available, one that is capable of playing on both sides as well as filling in at right tackle if needed. General manager Jerry Reese must ensure that Eli Manning is protected after taking a career-high 39 sacks last season.
Feb 26 - 9:14 AM

The Kansas City Star reports there's mutual interest between the Chiefs and impending free agent RG Geoff Schwartz.

Schwartz inked a one-year deal with the Chiefs in March and proceeded to overtake Jon Asamoah for the starting right guard job. Schwartz started eight games in total, including the playoff loss to the Colts, and graded out as a top-eight guard over at Pro Football Focus. The 27-year-old likely won't command a ton of money and has the ability to play both guard and tackle.
Jan 12 - 11:34 AM

Chiefs agreed to terms with G/T Geoff Schwartz, formerly of the Vikings.

Schwartz appeared in 13 games as a reserve last season after losing the Vikings' right guard job to Brandon Fusco. Schwartz missed all of 2011 with a hip injury, but was a 16-game starter for the Panthers in 2010, primarily at right guard. He'll be a swing man off the Chiefs' bench, and could start in a pinch.
