Tyler Sash DB NYG 3 Months
Giants S Tyler Sash left Thursday night's preseason finale with a concussion.
The Giants have been bitten by the injury bug in the final exhibition. Andre Brown re-fractured his left leg, and backup TE Adrien Robinson left with a foot injury. Following Stevie Brown's season-ending ACL tear last week, Sash had been bumped up to the third safety in New York. Fifth-round rookie Cooper Taylor is now backing up starters Antrel Rolle and Ryan Mundy.

Giants SS Tyler Sash was forced from New York's Week 10 game against the Bengals with an ankle injury, and will not return.
Sash was carted to the locker room. He's likely staring at a multi-week absence, at best. It's bad news for a team already missing Kenny Phillips. Will Hill, who opened the game on special teams, should be in for more time on defense.

Giants SS Tyler Sash has been activated from the reserve/suspended list.
He'll take the place of Will Hill, who's been suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Sash was suspended the first four games for failing a test related to performance-enhancing drugs, and the Giants had a one-week exemption for him which they utilized before the Browns game. Sash may quickly emerge as a starter while SS Kenny Phillips (knee) heals.

The Giants don't plan to activate S Tyler Sash (suspension) in time for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Sash is eligible to return after serving a four-game suspension to start the season, but he may not be in football shape yet. With Kenny Phillips (knee) out, the Giants will likely turn to Stevie Brown at strong safety. Will Hill will be the lone safety reserve. New York has until 4PM ET on Saturday to activate Sash and have him for Week 5.

Giants S Tyler Sash has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drugs policy.
Last year's sixth-rounder, Sash was expected to replace free agent Deon Grant as the No. 3 safety. He's eligible to play in exhibition games, but will sit out the first month of the season. GM Jerry Reese suggested earlier in the week that Grant could be brought back.

According to ESPN New York, Tyler Sash is the "leading candidate" to replace free agent Deon Grant as the Giants' No. 3 safety.
Primarily a special teamer as a rookie, Sash will compete with Stevie Brown and Chris Horton to be Kenny Phillips and Antrel Rolle's top backup. However, beat writer Ohm Youngmisuk believes the Giants haven't closed the door on re-signing Grant.
