If so, Schwartz would be able to return in Week 9.
Schwartz dislocated his toe in the preseason game against the Jets. He will be in a walking boot for another week, after which he will begin a rehab program, the Giants announced.
“After that, he will be evaluated on a week to week basis regarding his ability to return to football activities,” the team said.
It was previously feared that Schwartz could be lost for the season.
“This is just a minor setback,” Schwartz said in a release. “I plan on attacking the rehab program so I can get back on the field as soon as possible with my teammates and help us win games.”
