Sean Locklear carted off with right knee injury


New York Giants right tackle Sean Locklear was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s game against the Washington Redskins with an apparent right knee injury.

Locklear was engaged with a defender when a Redskins player fell into Locklear’s right leg. His right knee appeared to buckle and ESPN cameras caught Locklear expressing serious pain from the injury. Locklear was then carted off to the locker room.

He was replaced by David Diehl at right tackle.

UPDATE 12:05 a.m. ET: New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin confirmed it was a knee injury for Locklear in his post-game press conference. “It’s a knee. It’s a knee,” Coughlin said in hushed tones. Coughlin didn’t elaborate on the severity but the tenor of his comments said it’s as serious as it looked.
