Brian Witherspoon Also Out For Season

The hits just keep on coming for the New York Giants cornerbacks. Brian Witherspoon, carted off in the second half Monday night against the Chicago Bears, announced via Twitter that he is done for the season.

Witherspoon was injured while returning a punt. He joins Terrell Thomas and Bruce Johnson as cornerbacks already out for the season. Prince Amukamara's return from a broken foot is still several weeks away.

Witherspoon had been impressive during the preseason and when Thomas went down in the first half he looked like a player who might be able to step into a larger role in the secondary. Now, though, all he will be stepping into is a cast.
