Giants linebacker Curtis Grant was carted off the field in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Washington Redskins.
Grant was caught in the bottom of a pile and had his leg rolled up on before referees blew the play dead.
Players from both teams knelt on the field as team medical staff evaluated Grant before he was carted off. As he was helped onto the cart, players on both teams showed their respect by tapping him on the arm before he left the field. New York ruled him out for the remainder of the game.
Fellow linebacker Deontae Skinner left the game with a hamstring injury midway through the game, and the Giants were already playing without linebackers B.J. Goodson and Calvin Munson due to ankle and quad injuries, respectively. Jonathan Casillas (neck) and Kelvin Sheppard (groin) are active despite being listed as questionable earlier in the week.
Slot cornerback Donte Deayon left the game in the third quarter with jaw and forearm injuries, the team announced.
The 24-year-old Grant, a rookie out of Ohio State, was promoted from the practice squad earlier this season. He had 16 combined tackles in nine games entering Thursday.
