New York Giants Domenik Hixon Tears ACL Again

New York Giants wide receiver Domenik Hixon will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second straight year.

Hixon suffered the injury during Monday night’s 28-16 win over the St. Louis Rams, while making a juggling catch on a 22-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning.

He’s also a key punt returner for the Giants. Hixon missed all of last season after tearing his ACL during offseason minicamp workouts.

The Giants are now hopeful they can get wide out Mario Manningham back in time for Sunday’s NFC East showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. Manningham continues to undergo further tests after suffering a concussion against the Rams.

Hixon is the latest season-ending injury to rock the Giants. The wide receiver will be the ninth player to go on injured reserve and he’s the fifth Giant to suffer a season-ending ACL/knee injury, joining cornerback Terrell Thomas, middle linebacker Jonathan Goff, outside linebacker Clint Sintim and cornerback Brian Witherspoon.
