New York Giants second-year safety Tyler Sash had his season put on hold after he tested positive for Adderall, resulting in a four-game suspension. Now his suspension is over and he is eligible to play against the Cleveland Browns, but the coaches have decided not to activate him.
The Giants had until 4:00 PM EST Saturday to activate Sash, but it was reported that no roster moves were made. This could be a sign that safety Antrel Rolle, who is questionable with a bruised knee, will play. The team has until Monday to officially add Sash back to the 53-man roster.
Stevie Brown will start opposite of Rolle with Will Hill seeing some action at safety and nickel back. Sash's return is much anticipated after starter Kenny Phillips injured his knee, thinning the already suffering secondary. Sash admits he's anxious to get back to the field but he respects the decision the coaches made.
“You’ve always got to think that you’re going to be (active). I don’t know,” Sash said Friday. “You never know what the coaches and management are thinking. Coming off four weeks away, I don’t know if they want to throw me in there right away or what. But I feel like I’m ready to go, and I’m excited about maybe getting an opportunity to go.”
For the Browns, they will be without play-makers Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin, who have been downgraded to out for the game.
