Giants lose receiver Kris Adams to fractured leg

The New York Giants lost wide receiver Kris Adams to injury early in the second half of their preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday night.

On the second play from scrimmage of the third quarter, Adams slipped on a pass thrown to him by quarterback Curtis Painter. Adams was being covered by Steelers’ cornerback Josh Victorian on the play. His right foot landed on the left foot of Victorian instead of the turf. It caused him to lose his footing and his left leg caught awkwardly underneath him as a result. Adams clutched at his ankle area on the ground and needed to be carted off the field.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants announced Adams suffered a fractured leg.

Adams was targeted on three passes during the game but didn’t record a catch before leaving with the injury. Adams appeared in three games with the Indianapolis Colts last season and caught two passes for 26 yards.

    Just goes to show, nothing good comes out of Curtis Painter

    It looked really bad watching it live. Hopefully he recovers quickly and gets another shot!

    I thought Painter retired.

    Having not played a game in nearly nine months, since Dec. 30, 2012, the Steelers played 60 minutes of uninspired football, most notably on offense and special teams. No offensive TDs and several gaffs on special teams.
    Jarvis Jones looks too small for the NFL, while Landry Jones looks to be too befuddled. Plus, there’s no adequate offensive line depth.
    One preseason game does not a season make. However, this sorry showing, at home, was disappointing and belongs at the feet of the head coach.

    Man, that vehicle needs an upside down smiley mouth painted on it in the worst way.

    I hate to see this. Thought Adams had potential last year with the Colts. Wish him luck after he recovers.

    Yeah watching it live, that leg/foot after the play was NOT supposed to look that way…eeek

    Who? This guy isn’t even listed in the top 11 receivers on the Giants depth chart. And you say he caught 2 passes last year?

    Are you going to start reporting the injuries to every player who wasn’t even going to make the practice squad now?

  14. halftermguv says: Aug 11, 2013 2:40 AM

    Everyone should hope for a quick and full recovery.

    This guy is TOUGH. He refused the cart and finally relented to riding in the front.

    Two thumbs up.

    Best of luck Kris–get well soon–hang in there.

    This is one of he problems I have with the NFL…they’re far too infatuated with concussions yet do nothing to help avoid these leg injuries which end so many careers and wreck seasons for players.

    The NFL should mandate a perfect artificial surface which is identical at all stadiums and have every player wear shoes with soles designed for that surface to help avoid these type of injuries where the foot gets locked in the turf far too easily.

    Ummm…it’s football my friend. No matter what you do with the helmets, turf, padding or how someone lower’s their head. It’s a contact sport, and players are just going get injured. Have you ever played? Your statement makes absolutely no sense. To put it in realistic terms…. you can walk outside your door turn you ankle while coming down your walkway and tear ligaments. Would you be thinking “only if I had the right shoes on, maybe this would not have happened”. That’s how stupid your statement sounded.
