New York Giants left guard Glenn Parker will miss Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys after an arthroscopic procedure to repair his knee.

Parker injured his knee last Sunday when Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Kevin Henry threw him to the ground after grabbing his facemask. Parker returned to the game, but his knee froze up before practice on Wednesday. “Sometimes you can play with the knee and get it to free up,” coach Jim Fassel told the Associated Press. “Generally, it’s a little particle that gets stuck in the joint and causes pain when you move the knee.” Former Knee1 Webcast Doctor Russell Warren performed Parker’s surgery Wednesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery. During the procedure, loose bits of cartilage that had torn from Parker’s knee were removed.

With a record of 10-4, the Giants can clinch the NFC East title and a playoff bid by winning one of their next two games. Winning both will grant them a first-round by-week in the playoffs.

Parker will be sidelined between 7 and 10 days, forcing him out of this week’s game against the Cowboys and leaving him questionable for the final game against Jacksonville.

Jason Whittle will move to the left guard position to fill Parker’s void.
