EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -New York Giants Pro Bowl tight end Jeremy Shockey broke his left leg in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against the Washington Redskins.
Shockey was hurt on the Giants' first possession of the second half when teammate Amani Toomer rolled into the back of his leg from behind at the end of a running play.
Shockey was bent backward and immediately lay on the ground in obvious pain. He was helped to the sideline by Giants trainers and then taken in a cart for further examination. His leg was immobilized.
The injury was diagnosed as a broken left fibula, the smaller of two bones in the lower portion of the leg.
Shockey had two catches for 18 yards in the game.
