The Giants' medical staff had concerns about Jim Sorgi's shoulder even before the team signed him. It took an extra day of phone calls between the team's docs and Dr. James Andrews, the noted orthopedist who had also examined Sorgi, for the contract to be offered and signed.

Now it looks like the Giants are having concerns again. Sorgi will be sent to Manhattan's Hospital for Special Surgery tomorrow for an MRI on his shoulder after soreness developed following Monday night's game. Sorgi took a number of hits during the game and, according to his agent Matt Brei, was not sure which of those slams actually caused this injury.

Sorgi of course was on IR at the end of last season with tendonitis in his shoulder. But throughout camp he was not experiencing any problems with the shoulder from throwing.

As a precaution, the Giants have agreed to terms with Domenic Randolph, a quarterback out of Holy Cross who was with the team during rookie minicamp, for a one-year deal, according to his agent. Randolph was in transit from Richmond this evening but was expected to sign the deal upon his arrival and be on the field for tomorrow's practice.

The one-year deal could wind up being a one-week deal depending on Sorgi's MRI.
