Giants WR Brandon Marshall will have season-ending surgery

JJ Watt suffered a scary knee injury during 'Sunday Night Football'

Brandon Marshall's tenure with the Giants didn't even get off the ground and it's already over. This time, they may have hit rock bottom, as they learn that star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.is done for the season - officially.

Beckham was carted off the field a few plays before the Los Angeles Chargers scored a TD. Watt is another National Football League superstar who is done for the year, as he fractured his tibial plateau on Sunday.

Marshall announced his season was over on Instagram, saying that he'll have surgery today to fix his injured ankle.

Beckham was the last of four Giants receivers to go down on Sunday.


Dwayne Harris, who also returns punts and kickoffs, will have surgery Tuesday for a broken foot, while Sterling Shepard was hurt on the same series as Marshall. A sore finger also limited Beckham after he dislocated it during the Giants Week 4 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Watt missed most of last season with an injury as well, and you have to wonder how this is going to affect his playing status in the long-term.

Beckham had 25 catches for 302 yards and three touchdowns this year, including a 48-yarder in the fourth quarter Sunday. The team signed Tavarres King and promoted Travis Rudolph from its practice squad to help fill the gap. Folk was placed on injured reserve with a "minor injury classification".

In his absence, Nick O'Leary will start at tight end.

Head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed that both were season-ending injuries, a day after defensive end Watt broke his left leg and Mercilus, a linebacker, tore a pectoral muscle in a loss to Kansas City. He's second on the team with 20 catches and leads Buffalo with 258 yards, and tied for the team lead with 2 touchdowns.
