New York Giants OTA 2012: Brian Witherspoon Carted Off Field, Torn ACL Possibility

New York Giants cornerback Brian Witherspoon, who tore his ACL last August and missed the entire 2011 season, fell to the ground Wednesday during the first OTA of the offseason and might have repeated his nightmare.

Tom Coughlin said he fears that Witherspoon tore his ACL again. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Witherspoon was "carted off the field after writhing in pain as trainers worked on him and his teammates knelt in prayer nearby."

Witherspoon wasn't the only Giant carted off the field. Antwaun Molden was likewise removed by the training staff after tweaking his hamstring in coverage.

"It's tough but I've been through this situation before so it's good to know what to do," said the former Patriot, who has dealt with hamstring trouble in the past.
