The New York Giants have been handed a blow today as they look to patch up a defense that has seen more than its fair share of injuries this offseason.

After losing a trio of safeties already this season in the form of Bennet Jackson, Mykkele Thompson and Justin Currie, the Giants appear set to lose another in the position, second-year player Nat Berhe.


Berhe has been struggling with a calf issue throughout August and revealed on Twitter today that he is set for surgery to remove a "hardened blood clot" - an issue that looks likely to rule him out for the entire 2015 NFL season.

Earlier this year Berhe was touted as a starter in the Giants secondary in his second year in the league but it now looks like the 24-year-old, who appeared in all 16 games in 2014, won't get a minute on the gridiron.

Growing list

The news means that the return to the field of 2015 rookie Landon Collins this week has come at just the right time.

Collins will now be bumped up a depth chart that is looking thin on the ground. The only other healthy options are Brandon Meriweather, Jeromy Miles and Cooper Taylor.

The Giants have certainly been unlucky with injury this summer on the defensive side of the ball but fans of the New York franchise will be hoping their exciting offense can bail out what could well be a makeshift D early on in the new season.
