Giants put Geoff Schwartz on IR-recall, add Snyder

The New York Giants continue to shuffle their suspect offensive line.

The team officially placed Geoff Schwartz on injured reserve with a designation to return on Wednesday, a move that will sideline the starting guard for the first half of the regular season. Schwartz suffered a toe injury in the Week 3 preseason win over the New York Jets.

The Giants filled Schwartz's spot on the roster by signing former San Francisco 49ers guard Adam Snyder, the team announced.

Snyder, 32, is a 10-year veteran who started 73 games with the Niners. He was a 14-game starter during a one-season cameo with the Arizona Cardinals in 2012. Snyder rejoined the Niners in 2013 and spent most of the season as a backup before being cut last weekend.

Schwartz is eligible to return to action for the Giants' Week 9 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. The Giants' season rides on their ability to cobble together some semblance of protection for Eli Manning.
