Kevin Boss will have minor ankle surgery next week

New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his ankle next week to clean it out.

Pat Hanlon, the team’s vice president for communications, reported via his Twitter account that Boss is expected to need four to six weeks to recover from the surgery, meaning he will be fully ready well in advance of training camp.

The news was not as positive for offensive lineman Kevin Boothe. The veteran who made two starts last season but has appeared primarily on special teams throughout his career suffered a torn pectoral muscle working out earlier this week. He will also have surgery next week and rehabilitation time is expected to be about four months. That will seriously put Boothe’s 2010 season in jeopardy.

The most pressing injury situation for the Giants involves safety Kenny Phillips. He underwent knee surgery early last season and has yet to make it back out on the field. That is the situation worth watching in New York.
