Giants rookie wide receiver Robinson to miss rest of the season with torn ACL
The New York Giants' already poor passing attack took a hit Monday with the team announcing that rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.
The 2022 second-round draft pick had nine catches for 100 yards after combining for 14 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown in his first five games.
Robinson had already missed four games after suffering an MCL injury in the season opener.
"We know how explosive [Robinson] can be," Giants running back Saquon Barkley said after Sunday's game.
"Not having him out there is definitely going to be a loss, but it's going to give other guys opportunities and we have all the confidence in all the other guys too to step in and make plays."
New York (7-3) rank 28th in the NFL with 177.3 passing yards per game. The Giants visit the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys (7-3) on Thanksgiving Day.
"We have plenty of receivers on the roster as you know," first-year New York coach Brian Daboll said. "It's a short week. We'll get the guys ready to go. We'll revisit things as we do each week and see how it goes."
