EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have placed top offensive lineman Justin Pugh on injured reserve with a back injury.

Pugh started the season at left guard, but moved to right tackle when Bobby Hart struggled. He finished the season with three starts at left guard and five at right tackle.

Pugh got a second opinion from a doctor in Los Angeles earlier this week and was told that surgery is not necessary. He will treat the injury with rest and rehabilitation.
