The cost of the Giants' victory over Kansas City just got a bit steeper, according to a statement the organization just released. LB Michael Boley, who suffered knee stiffness on the plane ride home, underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee.
Though the surgery went well, the recovery time is approximately four weeks. If he holds to that, he'll be back in time for the San Diego game on Nov. 8, which starts the second half of the season. The bye does come a week later, however, so it's conceivable the Giants could keep him out a tad longer to let him benefit from an extra two weeks of rest.
It's a shame because Boley had his best game of the season last week. He didn't miss a play, and had a sack and four tackles for losses. Now, it's a question of whether Chase Blackburn or Bryan Kehl will take over the weakside spot.
Have to see tomorrow who practices with the first unit there. My guess it's Blackburn, who started at WSL as Boley served a one-game league suspension in the opener.
