The New York Giants entered the Super Bowl with few injury questions but they've lost a tight end early in the game. Travis Beckum went down with a torn ACL, according to press box reports. Beckum went down earlier in the game on what seemed like a routine play where he was jammed by a defender but when he started to cut after coming off the block he fell to the ground. Medical personnel came out and helped him limp off the field.
Here is a look of the injury where you can see it seems like a normal play:
The Giants could use him for this game but this injury is a lot more serious than just one game. He'll be out for several months at a minimum, including most of the offseason. This is an automatic season-ender.
The Giants are leading the Patriots, 9-3, midway through the second quarter.
This won't have a significant impact on the game against the Patriots. Beckum only played about 15 percent of the snaps on the season.
