Giants WR Hixon will undergo second surgery on right ACL

New York Giants receiver Domenik Hixon has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second straight year.

The club confirmed Hixon's news via Twitter. "#Giants WR Domenik Hixon has a tear to his right ACL, the same knee he injured in spring of '10 and forced him to miss last season. said Hixon will have surgery in the near future," the Giants tweeted.

The New York Daily News reported Hixon will have surgery to repair his torn ACL in the near future, and the Giants will place the wideout on injured reserve.

Hixon was hurt Monday night making a juggling catch on a 22-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning in the Giants' 28-16 win over the St. Louis Rams.

Hixon missed all of last season after tearing the ACL during an offseason minicamp workout.

Fellow receiver Mario Manningham is undergoing further examination for a concussion sustained on Monday.
