Reserve cornerback Justin Tryon will likely miss the rest of the New York Giants’ season after suffering a broken arm in Sunday’s 20-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Tryon is reportedly undergoing surgery today.
Now for the amazing part. Tryon apparently played the final two quarters of the game with the broken arm. He made a tremendous tackle on Miami punt returner Reggie Bush late in the fourth quarter, grabbing Bush by the ankles and not letting go until help arrived.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin called Tryon’s effort “an inspiration to me.”
Tryon was signed as a free agent just a few weeks ago, and had become a dependable extra cornerback and special teams gunner. Tryon was released earlier this season by the Indianapolis Colts.
In other injury news, center David Baas (knee) is day-to-day and there is no word at this point on the severity of the hamstring injury suffered by wide reeceiver Hakeem Nicks.
