    GIANTS' BRIAN WITHERSPOON MAY HAVE INJURED ACL

    "The buildup to this New York Giants season is
    starting just like last year.



    Cornerback Brian Witherspoon left
    practice Wednesday on a cart, and early indications from coach Tom Coughlin are
    that Witherspoon suffered an ACL injury, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New
    York Daily News. It's a crushing blow for the fifth-year undrafted player, who
    also tore his ACL before the 2011 season.










    Witherspoon was seen as a likely dime back and special-teams dynamo for the
    Giants last year before the injury. The Giants suffered a series of injuries in
    the secondary before last year, most notably to starting cornerback Terrell Thomas."

        Ugh, terrible news. So I'm gonna be "that guy" for at least right now. I don't know of any preventative measures for an ACL especially coming into workouts cold, however Hixon tore his and re tore it the very next season as well. Is the staff letting our boys come back too soon from these injuries? I don't think they would I know they have a great rep but still it makes me wonder when it happens two years in a row

            If anything we know two things:

            1. The GIANTS medical staff is ultra conservative regarding returning from injuries
            2. TC let's the medical staff determine when a player comes back without any pushing

              I can only think these injuries are turf related. I haven't done any analysis or anything, but it sure seems like we've had a lot more of them lately.
              Do not feed the trolls.

                Hixon was the first of several injuries just running on the field
