Jim Sorgi hoped to return and play in the preseason finale for the New York Giants on Thursday.
Now, he’s not going to play this season. Not for the Giants anyway. The team placed the reserve quarterback on injured reserver today with a torn muscle in his right throwing shoulder, meaning Rhett Bomar will be the backup to Eli Manning, at least for the time being.
Sorgi, who previously served as an understudy to Eli’s brother Peyton in Indianapolis, was injured in the first preseason game against the New York Jets. He saw his opportunity slipping away but could not recover in time.
To get to the 75-man roster limit, the Giants also placed wide receiver Sinorice Moss and linebacker Adrian Tracy on injured reserve. Offensive lineman Kevin Boothe was moved to the reserve physically unable to perform list, wiping him out for at least the first six weeks of the season and wide receiver Nyan Boateng was waived.
