As expected, an MRI conducted on the right knee of Giants offensive lineman David Diehl reveals an injury to his MCL, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
That’s good news for the Giants, since it’s not an ACL injury.
The MCL, a rope-like ligament, can regenerate without surgery, unless it’s fully torn. In this case, Diehl’s MCL isn’t fully torn. It’s currently unknown, however, how much time he’ll miss.
Diehl has been a jack of all trades for the Giants over the years. He’s currently the starting right tackle.
