EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants tight end Jake Ballard tore his left anterior cruciate ligament during the second half of Super Bowl, the team announced on Tuesday.
An MRI discovered Ballard’s injury, and with the help of crutches, he was able to participate in Tuesday’s parade and ceremonies in New York and New Jersey.
Ballard, an undrafted free agent, had 38 catches for 604 yards and four touchdowns this regular season. In the four playoff games, he had five catches for 43 yards. He had two receptions in the Giants’ 21-17 win over New England on Sunday.
