Alford's knee injury a bad one

From Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News:

Defensive tackle Jay Alford, who was carted off the field in the Giants’ loss to the Bears last night, has been diagnosed with a torn MCL and a partial tear of his ACL. His season is most definitely in jeopardy, though the Giants may not make that determination for another two weeks.

According to a team spokesman, Alford - - who is also the team’s long-snapper on field goals - - was examined in Manhattan today by Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ team physician. In Chicago, Alford had initially been diagnosed with a left knee "sprain," but Dr. Warren discovered the two torn ligaments.

The plan, according to the spokesman is for Alford "to strengthen and rehab the knee for approximately two weeks." After that, the Giants will "make a determination on the severity of the ACL damage."
