New York Giants safety Tyler Sash is eligible to return to action this weekend after completing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substance abuse policy.
The Giants have until 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon to determine whether they wish to use Sash in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns. In order to do so, the club will have to make a roster move to make space. If they chose not to use him, the team will have until next Monday at 4 p.m. to make space. With safety Kenny Phillips out with an MCL injury, it certainly appears as though New York could use Sash in the secondary.
The 24-year-old University of Iowa product spent the first two weeks of the season training in Miami before returning to Iowa to continue his workouts. He is ready to get back to action, via ESPN.com:
"I'm ready," Sash said. "I've been sitting at home. Besides working out, I've been watching football trying to be around football. I went to high school practices. I went to seventh-grade football games. I just wanted to be around football."
