Giants’ Mario Manningham, Domenik Hixon Banged Up In Win
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The injury woes continue for the Giants.
Add receivers Mario Manningham and Domenik Hixon to New York’s list of hobbled players.
“We have a couple of people that are nicked,” coach Tom Coughlin said after the Giants’ 28-16 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Monday night.
Manningham, who set up a touchdown by Hixon late in the first half with a 31-yard catch, didn’t return for the second half because of a concussion.
“Evidently it was right at the end of the first half,” said Coughlin. “He bobbled that ball, the big play ball. I guess when he came in he was kind of dizzy at that point in time.”
“My neck stiffened up,” added Manningham. “But I’ll be good.”
Hixon injured his right calf while making a juggling 22-yard touchdown catch with 21 seconds left in the first half.
He played on the Giants’ opening series in the third quarter but the team announced after it was over that he wouldn’t return.
“They asked me if I felt 100 percent, I gave them an honest answer, ‘No.’ They said they wanted to go ahead and hold me out,” said Hixon, according to the New York Post. “I think more or less they are being (cautious). I’m not worried about it.”
