The team announced Tuesday that following an examination, Schwartz will remain in a walking boot for approximately seven to 10 days and then begin a rehabilitation program.
The positive news is that Schwartz won't need season-ending surgery. The 28-year-old lineman will be evaluated on a "week to week basis," after getting out of the boot, the team said.
In essence, it was the best in a bunch of possible bad scenarios for the Giants.
"This is just a minor setback," Schwartz said in a team statement. "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."
