INDIANAPOLIS -- While the Giants tight ends aren’t nearly as prolific as those from New England, New York lost a component of its team in the second quarter when tight end Travis Beckum tore his ACL.

After Beckum injured himself, he stayed on the turf for several minutes, and when trainers got him off the floor, he clearly couldn’t put any weight on his knee. His injury was announced a few minutes later in the press box.

Beckum, in his third season (all with the Giants), played 13 games this year, recording five catches for 93 yards and a touchdown. But with a weak Patriots secondary having to cover Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham, the Giants figured they might have success tonight by throwing to their tight ends and fullback.

Midway through the second quarter with the Giants leading 9-3, those units had combined for five catches.

“Our tight ends aren’t going to get doubled Sunday,” Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said earlier this week. “They’re going to get single coverage. If they can beat a linebacker in most instances, they’ll have a chance to get the ball.”
