Halapio (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Halapio suffered fractures to his lower leg and ankle during Week 2's matchup against the Cowboys. The starting center underwent surgery earlier this week, and will spend the remainder of the 2018 season on injured reserve. The loss of Halapio is a significant blow to the Giants' offensive line, and Evan Brown will likely step in as his replacement.
Halapio broke his ankle in Sunday's game against the Cowboys and is sidelined for the remainder of the 2018 season, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Halapio exited Sunday's loss to Dallas with the injury and underwent X-rays. The fractured ankle is a blow to the Giants' offensive line. Evan Brown is the likely candidate to fill in at starter for the foreseeable future, with Halapio likely to get moved to injured reserve at some point in the coming weeks.
Halapio left Sunday's loss to Dallas early with a lower leg injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Halapio was taken to the locker room for X-rays but the results remain unclear. The injury could lead to an extended absence, and the team is hoping its starting center is able to return to action soon. Evan Brown is a likely candidate to start if Halapio misses time.
Halapio will get his first career start in Thursday's Week 12 tilt against the Redskins, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.
Halapio was brought up to the Giants' active roster in October and has operated as a backup for the team since then. His start Thursday is coming as a result of D.J. Fluker (toe) being doubtful for the game.
