Brian Witherspoon Injury: New York Giants' Woes Continue With Cornerback's Torn ACL

Brian Witherspoon is the latest player to fall victim to a season-ending injury for the New York Giants after reportedly tearing his ACL on Monday night.

For the New York Giants, the season-ending injuries are coming at a break-neck pace. After already losing Terrell Thomas to a torn ACL and rookie Marvin Austin to a torn pectoral muscle, the Giants announced Brian Witherspoon with also miss the season after tearing his ACL during a punt return on Monday night. Witherspoon becomes the third Giants' defensive back to suffer a season-ending injury in a training camp that's been a nightmare for the team.

Witherspoon was, understandably, disappointed after learning the news following the Giants' 41-13 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday night.

"I was doing well in training camp," he said Monday night before undergoing an MRI on Tuesday. "For me to get an injury at this point in time when I had such a good opportunity to make this team, it is disappointing.

With Witherspoon, Thomas and Bruce Johnson on the shelf for the year, and rookie Prince Amukamara sidelined for at least a few more weeks with a broken foot, the Giants secondary is thin as can be. And at this point, it almost feels like the Giants are snake-bitten, with season-ending injuries coming left and right, leaving the Giants scrambling to fill holes.
