New York Giants’ Xavier Grimble, Trindon Holliday Each Dealing with New Injuries

As the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game nears, the New York Giants have been relatively lucky on the injury front. Their major loss came earlier this offseason when linebacker Jon Beason fractured his foot, while rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has also missed some time with a hamstring injury. Beyond that, they've stayed relatively healthy … at least until this past Sunday.

As Big Blue took the field over the weekend, they did so without tight end Xavier Grimble, whom head coach Tom Coughlin said was shut down with what he believes to be a "minor" hamstring strain.

"Minor hamstring strain a couple of days ago," Coughlin said.

Coughlin gave no indication how long the team expects Grimble to be out, but also announced that he wasn't the only player to sustain a new injury. In addition to Grimble, wide receiver and return specialist, Trindon Holliday, also suffered an apparent leg/knee injury on Sunday.

"Yes, he did something catching a punt," Coughlin said. "Hopefully, it’s not much."

Like Grimble, Coughlin offered no timetable on a return, but Holliday was seen on Sunday with a large ice wrap around his knee/leg.

With increased focus on preventing hamstring injuries and frustration already boiling over with Odell Beckham Jr., Coughlin can be none too pleased with these latest injuries.

    This injury will spell the end of Trindon Holliday. I dont see him making this team.

  2.  Krow says:

    Trindon “Small Hands” Holliday looks like a fumble machine. That won’t endear him to Gramps.

    •  BigBlueGiant says:

      he’s always had fumbling problems. And he’s not much of a WR.

      •  Krow says:

        Grimble doesn’t figure into the equation either. He’s a camp body and future Piggly Wiggly Asst. Manager.

      •  GOAT56 says:

        And we have two high level KR in Demps and Wilson on the roster as well. He has a chance as the 6 WR with no one established but those other WRs are making noise and have surpassed Holiday.

  3.  GOAT56 says:

    I think Grimble has PS all over him. He has some talent but isn’t ready to overtake those in front of him yet. I don’t think he has upper tier TE talent but he can be a solid TE like Ballard if he develops so it’s worth him around.

    •  Krow says:

      I think he’s a goner. We have too many TEs already. And if his ceiling is low … and I believe you’re right about that … then they won’t waste a PS slot on him.

      •  GOAT56 says:

        Ballard was on PS. PS is for guys like Grimble. Guys with more talent won’t last on the PS and another team will go after them. That’s why I don’t think Cooper was exposed last year and Berhe won’t this year. Even Jackson might merit a roster spot due to his upside.

    Go to and listen to Robinson’s interview, doesn’t sound like the brightest light out there in addition to being “hopeless” on the field. Guy is a bust. I am with Kujo on this one, time to move on.

    Not only that Doog, but I get the distinct impression that all Robinson wants is to make his first (and likely last) million and then look for a place to sit down.
    And I don’t mean in a zone defense.

    This cat does not strike me as someone motivated to kick a$$ and take names.
    The polar opposite of Mark Bavaro (Who was and will always be the JPP of tight ends by the way)

    I really hope he makes a fool out of me, but personality wise this kid aint a match. For what you ask? For an NFL player, tight end or punter.

    Talent wise we’ll just have to see. That is if he can figure out where to line up.
    I was moving on when I was pushing Ebron the last 4.5 months.

    Kevin M. Gilbride: We will put tight ends in the backfield often in this offense. #nyg #giants

    Giants 101 @Giants_101
    Kevin M. Gilbride is making it sound, as has been speculated previously, tight ends will play a MAJOR and important role in 2014. #nyg

    Giants 101 @Giants_101
    Gilbride says Adrien Robinson has “flashes of great things,” but admits he’s been inconsistent. Says he needs to develop. #nyg #giants #NFL
