The New York Giants placed center David Baas on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered in Monday night's victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
Baas had just returned from a three-game absence due to a neck injury when he was hurt on the final snap of the Giants' first offensive series Monday.
"It's very frustrating, to say the least," Baas said. "You work so hard. We said we can't catch a break.
"You just go out there and play your heart out and things happen."
Jim Cordle, who started the three games Baas missed earlier this season, will move into the starting lineup fulltime.
Baas is the second Giants offensive lineman to land on injured reserve this season, joining right guard Chris Snee (hip, Oct. 4).
"You've got to get healthy again," Baas said. "That's all I've ever known is if something happens, you just work hard at getting back to the best you can, get closest to 100 percent as possible, and that's what I've got to do again.
"It's just an obstacle in the road, but we can get by it. It's tough to deal with it, but that's part of life and it's part of this game."
