The New York Giants lost another wide receiver before the end of the 2022 campaign.

Van’Dale Robinson tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Sunday’s 31-18 game against the Detroit Lions, coach Brian Daboll said Monday morning.

It’s a brutal end for a second-round rookie who was just starting to play a bigger role in the Giants’ offense. Robinson gained 100 yards on nine catches on Sunday before suffering an injury, his first 50-yard contest.

This injury was the final blow to the Big Blue’s receiving body. Sterling Shepard retired from the reserves earlier this season after suffering a knee injury late in the campaign. The club traded injured former first-round pick Kadarius Toni to Kansas City. Now Robinson is gone.

The latest injury puts Darius Slayton, Richie James and Isaiah Hodgins at the top of Daball’s attack rankings. The Giants, sitting at 7-3 and hunting for the postseason, desperately need Kenny Golladay, who caught his first two passes since Week 1 on Sunday, to turn into a playmaker.

Robinson’s injury will no doubt increase the focus on the Giants, who could potentially bring back Odell Beckham for a while. NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported over the weekend that OBJ is expected to visit the Cowboys and Giants after the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Giants’ defense was also seriously injured on Sunday, as cornerback Edory Jackson was out for 4-6 weeks with a knee sprain, NFL Network Insider source Ian Rapoport told NFL Network Insider.
