An MRI on Jim Sorgi’s right throwing shoulder revealed a torn capsule, according to his agent, and the injury will sideline the backup quarterback for two to three weeks. With Eli Manning already sidelined with stitches in his head, that leaves Rhett Bomar as the Giants’ only active quarterback and he will get most if not all of the snaps in Saturday’s preseason game against the Steelers.

The Sorgi injury is not related to the partially torn labrum that Sorgi suffered last season with the Colts, an injury that ultimately led to him being placed on injured reserve with tendonitis. His agent, Matt Brei, said that Sorgi was unaware which play the shoulder injury occurred on during the Jets game. Sorgi took a number of heavy hits playing behind the second-string offensive line.

Sorgi did not practice on Wednesday, leaving Bomar to take all of the reps. The Giants brought in rookie Dominic Randolph last night and signed him to a one-year contract to help carry the load in practice.
