Biggs: Giants' Jacobs to have knee surgery
The New York Giants’ season ended last week with a stunning loss at home to the Carolina Panthers, and running back Brandon Jacobs’ season is finished now.
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Jacobs will sit out the finale this week and undergo arthroscopic knee surgery next week. Jacobs has battled knee issues all season. Vacchiano reports he has a partially torn meniscus, and the scope will be done just as a cleanup procedure.
“I think Brandon’s always had some issues that he’s had to deal with,” Coughlin said. “He wouldn’t use it as an excuse and I won’t either.”
Jacobs rushed for only 835 yards this season and averaged only 3.7 yards per carry. He signed a four-year contract with $13 million guaranteed in the offseason.
