The agent for New York Giants offensive lineman Nick Gates provided an update on the player’s health after Gates  suffered a gruesome leg injury early in the team’s loss Thursday night against the Washington Football Team.

Jonathan Perzley, an agent with Sportstars Inc., indicated Gates was upbeat following the injury.

“Not a tougher dude on the planet than Gates,” Perzley said on Instagram, according to TMZ Sports. “He laughed on the phone and said ‘I snapped that s— in half.’ He will be back. It would take more than a broken bone to stop that man.”

Gates was set to have surgery Friday after staying in a Maryland hospital overnight.

Gates, who moved to guard after the team placed Shane Lemieux on injured reserve earlier in the day, suffered the injury in the first quarter. It appeared he got his leg rolled up on trying to block Washington defensive lineman Daron Payne.

Medical personnel placed Gates’ leg into an air cast while coach Joe Judge tried to console him. The young lineman managed a smile and waved to the crowd as he was carted to the locker room.

The Giants later announced Gates suffered a lower-leg fracture.

The 25-year-old Nebraska product is in his third season with New York. He played all 16 games for the Giants last season. He also played in each of the team’s 16 games in 2019, starting three. 

The Giants’ offensive line has been a source of frustration for fans. Trying to protect Daniel Jones has been a riddle the team has been trying to solve since drafting him in 2019. Jones was sacked 45 times last season. Having Gates was supposed to be a part of the solution.

Losing Gates, likely for the remainder of the season, is a huge blow to the team.
