Sintim, whom Coughlin said will have surgery after the swelling dies down, appeared unable to put any weight on his right leg while he was helped off the field in the second quarter of Monday night's 21-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

The second-year pro out of Virginia had 13 tackles before his injury.
