Giants' injury woes continue: Marvin Austin needs surgery

The injuries just keep piling up for the New York Giants.

The team learned Monday night that Terrell Thomas, arguably New York’s best cornerback, would miss the season with a torn ACL suffered in the closing minutes of the first half against the Chicago Bears.

Then, coach Tom Coughlin announced this afternoon that defensive tackle Marvin Austin, the club’s second-round draft pick from North Carolina, is likely done for the season. Austin has a torn left pectoral muscle that will likely require surgery.

The Giants have had injuries pile up for a couple weeks and now they’re turning more serious. Could be a long season if the team can’t catch some breaks quickly.
