Xavier McKinney injury: Giants safe for ‘several weeks’ with arm injury
McKinney said he suffered the injury while participating in a guided ATV tour during the bye week.
“Unfortunately, I had an accident and injured my hand. “The injury will keep me out for a few weeks,” McKinney wrote.
Here is the full statement:
McKinney, 23, is in his third season. After a breakout season in 2022, McKinney became the defensive signal caller for coordinator Wink Martindale. He is also the captain. So the first decision the Giants will have to make is who wears the green dot and calls the defensive signals.
McKinney has 38 tackles, fourth on the team. He also has four passes defensed, two tackles for loss, his only career quarterback sack and a quarterback hit.
The Giants have Julian Love and rookie fourth-rounder Dane Belton at safety. They also have Jason Pinnock on the 53-man roster as a backup safety and special teamer.
The Giants elevated safety Landon Collins from the practice squad for the last two games. The news could prompt the Giants to officially add Collins to the 53-man roster.
No word yet from the Giants on whether Collins will be placed on injured reserve, which would mean he would have to miss at least four games.
