The New York Giants will be without their top cornerback, Adoree’ Jackson, for four to six weeks after suffering a knee injury while returning a punt during Sunday’s 31-18 loss against the Detroit Lions. After the game, Jackson was diagnosed with a MCL sprain.
When asked about it following the game, head coach Brian Daboll said, “Look, it’s football. Obviously, it was unfortunate.” The news of Jackson’s injury comes on the heels of Daboll announcing that rookie wideout Wan’Dale Robinson also suffered a season-ending ACL tear in Sunday’s loss to Detroit. Not only will New York be down those two key players, but fellow corner Fabian Moreau left Sunday’s game with a rib injury, which has his status in doubt for Thursday’s Thanksgiving matchup against Dallas.
In 10 games played this season, Jackson has 51 tackles, seven pass breakups and one forced fumble.
