Preseason is all fun and games, but goal No. 1 is to stay healthy. Unfortunately, a New York Giants starter just exited tonight's preseason game with an injury. That would be starting offensive guard Shane Lemieux. 

Lemieux has exited Thursday night's preseason game with what's being reported as a toe injury. After leaving the game, the former Oregon offensive lineman went straight to the locker room. 

Hopefully this is nothing serious. Lemieux is a projected starter on the team's offensive line this upcoming season. 

"Giants LG Shane Lemieux heading into the locker room," said Art Stapleton.

The Giants replaced Lemieux with rookie guard Josh Ezeudu, who's now in at left guard. 

Hopefully this is just a precautionary move by the Giants and Lemieux's injury is minor.
