Giants lose Blake Martinez for season with torn ACL

Giants linebacker Blake Martinez will miss the rest of the season.

Martinez suffered a torn ACL on Sunday, according to Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com.

The Giants’ defensive captain and play-caller, Martinez suffered the non-contact injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Falcons.

Martinez is the Giants’ second team captain to suffer a season-ending injury, following offensive lineman Nick Gates.

It’s been a rough start to the season for the 0-3 Giants, and there are few reasons for optimism about it getting better.
