Jonathan Goff is out for the season after tearing his ACL. It's just the latest injury for the New York Giants in what has already been an awful preseason in that regard.
Goff was penciled in as the Giants' starting middle linebacker, but the ACL injury will land him on the injured reserve prior to this week's game against the Washington Redskins according to the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. La Canfora also reports that former Giant Kawika Mitchell is in line to be signed as Goff's replacement.
It isn't clear exactly when the torn ACL injury happened, but in a preseason that already saw a few defensive backs sustain season-ending injuries, nothing should ultimately surprise those around New York.
When the Giants open up their regular season on Sunday, it seems that rookie Greg Jones is probably in line for the start, one of 10 rookies on the opening-day roster, as he had a solid preseason and was listed as Goff's backup on the team's depth chart at NFL.com.
