“About to be one hell of a story,” Martinez tweeted after news of his torn ACL spread.

Martinez went down without contact early in the first half on Sunday and it was evident the was severe. Replays showed his knee “pop” before he fell to the turf and then had to be helped to the sideline.

In 2020, Martinez led the Giants with 151 tackles and added three sacks. He should have been named to the Bowl or awarded an All- honor, but received neither.

Martinez is the second Giants captain to be lost for the season in as many weeks. The team previously lost offensive lineman Nick Gates after he suffered a fractured tibia and fibula against the Washington Football Team.
