The Giants may have left Tampa with a win, but it came with a cost on the injury side.
Saquon Barkley headlines that list, but there were also a couple defensive injuries that impact the team heading into Week 4 against the Bucs, specifically to the team's linebackers.
Head coach Pat Shurmur revealed on Monday during his conference call that Alec Ogletree sustained a left hamstring strain in the game, and Tae Davis also had to leave and was put in concussion protocol.
In turn, the team has re-signed a familiar face in LB Nate Stupar to make up for that gap in the linebackers corps. Stupar spent all of training camp with the Giants, but was waived as part of 53-man roster cuts.
Stupar played in all 16 games with the Giants last season, starting in one contest. He totaled 14 combined tackles in that span.
It's unknown whether or not Ogletree and Davis will be out for the game against the Redskins at home on Sunday, but it is safe to say things aren't looking good at the moment. That would mean Ryan Connelly, the team's fifth-round pick this year, will have to step up if they are both absent. Connelly did secure the defense's first takeaway of the season -- an interception of Jameis Winston -- when he came in the second half.
Stupar should also see a good chunk of time on the field if they're both out. He knows DC James Bettcher's scheme and could slot right in if need be. Linebacker David Mayo is also on the Giants' depth chart.
