New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers has suffered two injuries, which will end his season. Peppers suffered a ruptured ACL, which might have kept him out for the season by itself, along with a high ankle sprain.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
Giants announced they placed safety Jabrill Peppers on injured reserve with two injuries to his right leg – a rupture to the ACL in his knee and a high ankle sprain. He was hurt in the third quarter of the Giants’ 25-3 victory Sunday against the Panthers.

Peppers was a first round selection out of the University of Michigan by the Cleveland Browns in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was sent to the New York Giants in the same trade that brought Odell Beckham, Jr. to Cleveland.
In his three years with the Giants, Peppers has played in 11, 14 and six games respectively. He also suffered a fracture in 2019, which ended his season that year, too. Peppers has intercepted two passes, scored one touchdown, racked up 197 combined tackles and 3.5 sacks during his time in New York.
