Bad news for the Giants last night with the New York Post reporting that linebacker Clint Sintim suffering a knee injury thanks to a chop block from Shane Vereen that ruptured the patella tendon and likely severed the ACL in the same knee he spent the entire offseason rehabbing back from last season where he tore that same ACL.

The New York Daily News also has an article with comments from head coach Tom Coughlin and his other teammates, who felt it's a tough break for a guy who worked so hard during the offseason to rehabilitate himself and get himself back out on the field
"You've got to feel badly for a guy that's coming back off a serious knee (injury)," Coughlin said after the Giants beat the New England Patriots in their preseason finale last night, 18-17. "Works his tail off, really didn't say a word the whole preseason, just did what he had to do, worked on the field. And then to see that happen tonight. It was devastating."

Mike Garafalo of the Star Ledger has more on the injury along with some good quotes from Carr in this piece, who politely asked Albert Hayesworth to 'stop chasing' him last night.

Garafalo also has his "3 things we learned from last night".

Paul Dottino of CBSNewYork.com writes that the Giants took their final step last night, and ponders a few spots that were up for grabs.

Paul Schwartz of The New York Post has an article on linebacker Mark Herzlich, who he feels may end up sticking around with the team after Saturday's cuts.

NBC New York has an article on last night's game, which includes a quote from the Giants on the fact the Patriots "had no clue" the fake punt was coming.

The Daily News has an article on Jerrel Jernigan, who they feel needs to do a better job keeping his eye on the ball after muffing another punt last night.
