NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — It’s been a brutal preseason for the Giants — and it just got worse.

Add Clint Sintim to the list of Big Blue players done for the season.

The 25-year-old linebacker ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee while making a tackle in the third quarter Thursday night against New England.

“I knew as soon as I hit,” Sintim, choking back tears, said afterward.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin called the injury “devastating.” Sintim may also have a torn ACL, according to the team.

That’s a tough blow for the young Sintim, who is coming off ACL surgery on the same knee. Giants general manager Jerry Reese expected his 2009 second-round pick out of Virginia to be a force this year.

“It’s unfortunate,” Sintim said. “I worked really hard to get back.”

“Works his tail off, really didn’t say a word the whole preseason, just did what he had to do, worked on the field,” said Coughlin. “And then to see that happen tonight. It was devastating.”

Michael Boley was also shaken up by the injury to his teammate.

“It’s tough, especially when you know what he went through,” said Boley. “Then something terrible like this happens again, it’s heartbreaking.”

Will the Giants be able to overcome their long list of injuries? Be heard in the comments below…
