Giants Tight End Travis Beckum Out With Torn ACL; Ballard Sprains Knee
NEW YORK (WFAN) – The Giants won Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis without their two top tight ends.
Travis Beckum suffered a torn right ACL against the New England Patriots Sunday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The backup tight end collapsed while running a short route with 12:55 left in the first half. He had to be helped off the field by two trainers.
New York announced the injury midway through the second quarter.
Beckum had five receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown in 2011. The 25-year-old recorded seven catches for 45 yards this postseason for the Giants.
In the fourth quarter, starting tight end Jake Ballard went down with a sprained left knee. The team downgraded Ballard from questionable to out, leaving Bear Pascoe as the only remaining player at the position.
