INDIANAPOLIS -- Jake Ballard suffered a non-contact knee injury in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLVI and is out for the remainder of the game.

On a second and eight, Eli Manning hit Victor Cruz for seven yards, but the next play was delayed as Ballard lay on the ground in pain, clutching his knee. He was helped up and walked off the field. As he approached the Giants sideline, he winced in obvious pain.

Ballard later tried to test his knee out on the sideline and things didn't go well; the Giants, unsurprisingly, ruled him out for the rest of the game.

The Giants are now down to one tight end -- Bear Pascoe -- with Ballard done for the day.
