Just moments ago, the New York Giants announced that they are placing rookie offensive guard Marcus McKethan on the season-ending injured reserve. 

McKethan, a fifth-round pick out of North Carolina, reportedly suffered a season-ending ACL injury. An unfortunate setback for the talented rookie. 

"Giants placed rookie fifth-round pick, OL Marcus McKethan, on injured reserve due to an ACL injury," said ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"G Marcus McKethan (ACL) has been placed on Reserve/Injured," the team announced.

"Bad news that was anticipated for Giants rookie OL Marcus McKethan: he's been placed on IR with a torn ACL," wrote Art Stapleton. 

"Giants 5th round rookie G Marcus McKethan suffered an ACL injury and is out for the season," said Field Yates.

"Marcus McKethan has a torn ACL. He's been palced on IR. Tough break for the rookie," said Patricia Traina. 

Hopefully the rookie has a good recovery and returns for the 2023 season.
