McKinney was named defensive MVP of the 2018 Orange Bowl while at Alabama. That year, his first as a starter, he collected two interceptions and three sacks. He was also on the 2017 Alabama team that won the NCAA National Championship, albeit as a backup.
Along with this information, Rapoport also reported Giants linebacker David Mayo suffered a torn meniscus. Mayo has been in the league since 2015, spending most of his career in Carolina. This is his second year as in New York.
It is unclear when either of these players will be able to return to action as of now. Stay tuned to TGH for more NFL injury updates.
