A rookie campaign that was filled with so much promise for NY Giants rookie wideout Wan’Dale Robinson ended in heartbreaking fashion. Robinson, a key target for Daniel Jones, suffered a torn ACL in the Week 11 loss to the Detroit Lions. Just like that, his first year in the NFL came to a close.

Robinson was obviously down in the dumps after hurting his knee, but he’s already thinking about his future with the NFC East side. Robinson took to Twitter to let people know he underwent successful knee surgery and he’s ready to come back stronger than ever.

NY Giants WR Wan’Dale Robinson undergoes successful knee surgery

The fact that Robinson is doing great after his surgery is exciting news for head coach Brian Daboll. The second-round pick showcased how explosive he could be at times this season – now, all eyes will be on him come 2023 to take a big step forward during his second campaign with Big Blue.

Before going down with his serious knee injury, Robinson posted 23 receptions for 227 yards and a touchdown. Due to other injuries, he was only able to play in six games. Let’s cross our fingers he can stay healthy from start to finsih in ’23.

CB Adoree’ Jackson not expected to play in Week 15

In some not so great news for the Giants, it doesn’t look like star cornerback Adoree’ Jackson will be able to return from his knee injury just yet. Jackson wasn’t able to participate in practice on Wednesday. As things stand, it’s looking like we’ll have to wait until the Christmas Eve showdown against the Vikings for Jackson to get back on the field.

Saquon Barkley should be ready to rock, though, which is fantastic news. No worries there for his neck injury. Leonard Williams looks like he has a great shot of being able to suit up vs. the Commanders after missing the showdown last weekend against the Eagles.

The Week 15 matchup with Washington is a must-win game for the G-Men and they need all of the healthy bodies they can get to try and record an upset at FedEx Field. Having Williams making plays up front for the defense would be massive. We’ll see what happens with tight end Daniel Bellinger too, but there’s plenty of optimism he’ll be able to play as well.
