The New York Giants have reported that WR Domenik Hixon will miss the entire 2010 season. Hixon will have surgery on a torn ACL in the next two or three weeks. Domenik Hixon is a tall receiver (6’2″) who has worked his tail off since coming to the Giants. Team reports say that Hixon will have his non guaranteed contract honored, since he was injured during practice. This is not a very good way to christen the brand new stadium. The culprit is said to have been the new turf that was put in at the stadium (hopefully, we had local guys do the job and didn’t outsource the job to a Texas or Philadelphia company). Hixon planted his foot into the new turf and had it get stuck, twisting his leg and knee while trying to release it. You can bet your last dollar that there will be some investigations into the new field and any repairs that need to made, will be done so swiftly.
Hixon has had a rocky three year career with Big Blue and just a couple of months ago, signed a one year contract with the G-men. He most likely would have been used on special teams in 2010, returning punts and kick offs. Now that WR’s Steve Smith, Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham, have all shown what they can do on the field, they will be used as the primary three wide receivers in 2010. Of course, things can change at any moment but those three seem to have a lock on the three starting roles.
