Report: Giants to place Zak DeOssie on season-ending IR

The 2019 regular season of long-snapper Zak DeOssie is about to come to an abrupt end, but that will likely coincide with his New York Giants career and, quite possibly, his NFL career.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports that the Giants intend to place DeOssie, who was added to the injury report with knee and wrist injuries on Thursday, on season-ending injured reserve.

A mainstay with the Giants and long-time team captain, DeOssie has struggled mightily this year, costing the team multiple times with poor snaps. It has also reflected poorly on kicker Aldrick Rosas, who is mired in the worst season of his entire football career.

A fourth-round pick of the Giants in the 2007 NFL Draft, DeOssie is one of only two players (Eli Manning) remaining from the team’s most recent Super Bowls. And with DeOssie now going on IR, it means that neither of those players will see the field again in blue (barring injury to Daniel Jones).

In 199 career games, DeOssie has recorded 86 tackles and forced two fumbles.
