Giants WR Corey Coleman out for season with torn ACL
The first week of training camp is off to a horrible start for the New York Giants, as they have already lost two wide receivers to injuries and one is going to miss the entire 2019 season.
The Giants have announced that Corey Coleman suffered a torn ACL in practice on Thursday, which means he will not play at all this year.

The injury occurred on the same day Sterling Shepard suffered a fractured thumb, and it is unclear how long he will be out. Shepard signed a four-year, $41 million extension with New York back in April, so they are clearly expecting big things from him going forward.
With Odell Beckham Jr. having been traded to the Cleveland Browns, Coleman was expected to play a much bigger role in New York’s offense. That will now have to wait until 2020 if he remains with the team.
