Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum were standing together as everyone else ran around on the field.
Their celebration was much simpler: a congratulatory tap of their crutches.
The Giants’ tight ends both suffered serious knee injuries tonight in the team’s 21-17 Super Bowl XLVI victory over the New England Patriots. Ballard tore his meniscus cartilage while Beckum tore his right anterior cruciate ligament. Neither returned to the game, leaving Bear Pascoe as the last man standing.
“The Super Bowl (victory) is good medicine for the injury,” Ballard said.
