The New York Giants have managed to fly under the radar so far in this off-season, ahead of the 2015 NFL season.

The only real talking point so far for the Giants has been how Odell Beckham Jr. will perform with Victor Cruz coming back from injury and surely eating in to the Madden Cover star's receptions next year. 

Something that the Giants would have been desperately hoping wouldn't have become a big deal is injury problems, especially on their offensive line that struggled so much last year. Unfortunately, they aren't so lucky.

BEATTY OUT

According to a report from Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, Giants left tackle Will Beatty suffered a serious pectoral injury while lifting weights and will miss a lengthy period of time.

Tom Rock of Newsday went further in to the story however and apparently confirmed that Beatty has had to go in for surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle, which will keep him off the football field until November at the earliest.

FLOWERS IN

It's fortunate for New York then that they spent their first round pick on a left tackle then, right? Well that's what one would think in this situation, but the Giants had apparently been looking at playing Ereck Flowers at the right tackle position and slowly let him adapt to the National Football League, rather than throwing him straight in at the deep end. 

Flowers is a very good player, there's a reason he went in the first round and was the second offensive lineman off the board in Chicago this year. But the former Miami Hurricane has serious parts of his game that he needs to work on and the Giants were banking on him playing RT with Justin Pugh moving to guard. That plan has now gone straight out the window.

Beatty was drafted by the Giants in 2009, using a second round pick on the lineman out of Connecticut. He won the Super Bowl with the team in their victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
