Jonathan Goff Reportedly Tears ACL; Giants Expected To Sign Kawika Mitchell

More bad injury news for the Giants: LB Jonathan Goff reportedly tore his ACL and will miss the entire season.

The New York Giants have had terrible luck with injuries this offseason with guys like CB Terrell Thomas (out for the year) and DE Osi Umenyiora (out for several weeks) missing time due to injuries. 

Here's another one: LB Jonathan Goff has a torn ACL.

Pro Football Talkreports that Goff's season is over. The Giants are expected to sign LB Kawika Mitchell to replace him, according to the report.

What a blow for the Giants. Again. Goff was entering his second season as the Giants starting linebacker after the team drafted him in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL draft. I'm not sure how many more injuries like this they can handle.

Mitchell previously played with the Giants in 2007. The 31-year old linebacker was a second round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2003 draft.

Giants fans at SB Nation's Big Blue View are understandably pretty upset at the latest news.
