 EAST RUTHERFPORD, N.J. (AP) -New York Giants Super Bowl hero David Tyree will miss the rest of the season.
Tyree, who made ``The Catch'' in New York's Super Bowl victory over the Patriots in February, was placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Wednesday.
He had spent the entire training camp on the physically unable to perform list before the start of training camp. He seemingly never had a chance to made the active roster after pulling a hamstring once he started practicing on Oct. 15.
``The medical people say he was not ready,'' coach Tom Coughlin said in making the announcement.
The Giants had until 4 p.m. to make a decision on Tyree.
The 28-year-old Tyree earned a spot in Super Bowl history with a leaping grab in traffic on the team's final drive in the fourth quarter, securing the ball against his helmet as he fell to the playing surface. The 32-yard play set up Eli Manning's touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress in the final minute.
Tyree, who is in his sixth season, was not immediately available for comment.
``He actually took it very well,'' said Coughlin, who told Tyree of the decision earlier in the morning.
The Giants had the option of adding Tyree to their active roster, placing him on injured reserve or releasing him, but they still would have owed him his salary for the year.
Tyree said Monday that he felt he would help on special teams, a spot where he earned Pro Bowl honors in 2005.
However, he faced a tough time making a contribution at receiver with Burress, Amani Toomer, Steve Smith, Domenik Hixon, Mario Manningham and Sinorice Moss all playing well now.
Tyree said he thought about playing for another team but he liked being a Giant.
``Obviously, for what my career has been up to this point, this is definitely where I prefer to be, but I also prefer to play football,'' he said Monday.
