With injuries leaving the New York Giants shorthanded at running back, the team turned back to Brandon Jacobs to bail them out back in September.

Now Jacobs’ season is over.

According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News, the Giants have placed Jacobs on injured reserve.

Jacobs’ marquee performance in his return to New York came against the Chicago Bears in October. Jacobs carried 22 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears. For the season, Jacobs appeared in seven games with one start. He carried 58 times for 238 yards and four touchdowns. He leads the Giants in rushing touchdowns.

Jacobs has been battling injuries to his knee and hamstring in recent weeks and didn’t play int he team’s last two games before being placed on injured reserve.

The Giants are signing linebacker Marcus Dowtin off their practice squad to replace Jacobs on the active roster.

    Shame. You’d figure that not playing for a year basically that he would be fresh but injured again. Football (among other sports) is mean on the body. I support hgh for recovery.

    And nothing of value was lost.

    The running game is the #35 show at this point anyway. Although it is great to see Hillis launch himself into defenders every one in a while.

    I think they should keep Hillis, he has played in four games and not broke his leg twice yet.

    If the blind haters can separate their disdain from the facts once in a while they’d recognize that Jacobs played extremely well considering that he averaged over 4 ypc behing that poor excuse for a OL. If he heals up, I’d take him back. Hillis is useless.
