New York Giants’ Brandon Marshall Suffers Season-Ending Injury
Andrew Horun is a grade-school soccer and wrestling coach and a senior at Phillipsburg High School, where he competes on the wrestling team. Beyond his own athletic pursuits, Andrew Horun is an avid sports fan who counts the New York Giants as his favorite National Football League (NFL) team.
The Giants lost in last season’s Wild Card playoff game, but entered the 2017 season with lofty expectations, especially after signing veteran receiver Brandon Marshall. However, the team began the season by losing its first five games, and expectations are now bleak. In addition to its lack of success, the team will be without the services of Marshall for the remainder of the season.
Originally a fourth-round pick of the Denver Broncos in the 2006 NFL Draft, Marshall led the league in touchdowns two seasons ago as a member of the New York Jets. However, he had no touchdowns through five games with the Giants and was averaging a career-worst 8.6 yards per reception with just 18 catches on 33 targets. He suffered a broken ankle in the Giants’ Week 5 loss against the Los Angeles Chargers and, two days later, announced he was going to undergo season-ending surgery. New York signed Ed Eagan off its practice squad to fill Marshall’s vacated roster spot.
