He missed five games due to his ailing back before landing on injured reserve in mid-December. A first-round draft pick of the Giants in 2013, Pugh has played both tackle positions before moving to left guard. He missed 13 games over the past two seasons after sitting out only four in his first three years. Prior to going on IR for the first time in his career, Pugh, 27, had sought a second opinion from Dr. Robert Watkins, who prescribed rehab and rest in the hopes of avoiding surgery.
