(Reuters) - Brandon Marshall became the third New York Giants receiver to suffer a season-ending injury on Sunday after he announced he would undergo surgery on his ankle and miss the rest of the campaign.
Marshall went down during the team’s 27-22 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Fellow receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (broken ankle) and Dwayne Harris (broken foot) were also lost for the year due to injuries picked up in the game.
Marshall wrote on his Instagram page that his 12th season in the league was coming to an early end.
“Tomorrow I’ll have surgery ending year 12,” he wrote. “I‘m filled with mixed emotions. I wasn’t able to produce for my team the way I wanted to but this was my greatest year to date. This game has shown me who I really am good and bad.”
The 33-year-old had 18 catches for 154 yards and no touchdowns in five games this season.
