Giants' Brandon Jacobs has season-ending knee surgery; placed on IR

Just one day after being moved to season-ending injured reserve, New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has gone under the knife to have his knee "cleaned out." The running back tweeted a picture of himself at a hospital Wednesday night with the caption "Drugged much."
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Wednesday that Jacobs was pretty much "incapacitated." Jacobs has been dealing with knee issues since 2008 and this season they finally caught up to him. 

Jacobs' second stint with Big Blue could be over after signing a one-year deal back in September prior to Week 2. In seven games this season, Jacobs rushed for 238 yards on 58 carries and led the team with four rushing touchdowns.

With Jacobs out of the picture, running backs Andre Brown and Peyton Hillis will likely split the carries for the remainder of the season. The Giants have called linebacker Marcus Dowtin up from the practice squad to fill Jacobs' spot on the active roster.
