It was tough to watch Giants guard/center Rich Seubert leave the field on a cart in the first quarter Sunday at Washington. The 10th-year veteran was in agonizing pain holding his right knee. The Giants initially said that Seubert dislocated his kneecap.
However, Mike Garafolo of the Star Ledger says Giants team doctors believe Seubert also suffered a torn patella tendon.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Seubert will undergo surgery on Tuesday. Doctors believe the injury is not career-ending.
Just about no injury for Seubert can be considered “career-ending”; after all, this is a man who came back from a spiral leg fracture. That gruesome injury happened in 2003 and included a broken fibula, tibia and ankle. Seubert spent months in the hospital and underwent five operations before returning in 2005.
His recovery this time will, likely and hopefully, be less intricate. Still, it’s an injury with the same leg, so the outlook can’t be certain.
