Less than 30 minutes into the New York Giants' first day of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and already one player has gone down with what looks to be serious injury.
While performing individual drills, cornerback Brian Witherspoon, who is coming off of a surgically repaired ACL, went down with an apparent and needed to be immediately helped onto a cart. He was promptly carted off of the field by trainers and staff.
Witherspoon was a lost a season ago after tearing his ACL during the preseason. He had played quite well leading up to that point, and appeared to be a lock for the 53-man roster.
In recent days, Witherspoon had been tweeting about his progress and desire to get back out on the field – to pick up where he had "left off." He had also shared several photos via Instagram of him vigorously studying the Giants' defensive playbook.
