EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Giants have placed running back Brandon Jacobs on season-ending injured reserve, two days after a knee injury kept him out for a second straight game.
Jacobs finished the season with 238 yards rushing and four touchdowns — most among Giants running backs — and two receptions for 13 yards in seven games.
Some have speculated that this could mark the end of a career for Jacobs, who has played in just nine games over the past two seasons. He has 5,094 career rushing yards and 60 touchdowns in nine seasons (eight in New York, one in San Francisco).
New York also signed linebacker Marcus Dowtin from the practice squad on Tuesday night, terminated the practiced squad contract of linebacker Darin Drakeford, and singed defensive end Kendrick Adams and defensive back Chaz Powell to the practice squad.
