New York Giant Keith Rivers Injured In Car Accident
Add a car accident to the list of woes for Keith Rivers of the New York Giants this year. Rivers suffered the accident during the bye week while back home in California. Rivers is now back with the team; however, he was held out of practice and is going to be examined by team doctors. Head Coach Tom Coughlin called it a minor accident, but then backtracked a little bit from that statement.
Rivers has only played in five of the 10 Giants games this year, missing time due to hamstring and calf injuries. Rivers was acquired in the off-season from the Cincinnati Bengals for a fifth round pick, a move that I thought was going to be a good one for the team to give them some additional linebacker depth, something the team has lacked in recent years.
Rivers had much potential coming out of college and was the Bengals first round pick. Everyone knows him for having his jaw broken by Hines Ward on a block. Rivers missed all of 2011 with injury and his best year was the year before that with 77 tackles.
Rivers has looked rusty at times for the Giants, but that comes from only playing in five games the past two years and being injured. The guy was a first round pick for a reason and does have a little bit of ability. He just needs to stay healthy to show it. Hopefully, for his sake and the Giants, his injury isn’t serious and he can recover from it very quickly.
