DT Jay Alford will miss season with knee surgery

Associated Press—September 4, 2009

New York Giants backup defensive tackle Jay Alford is going to miss the season with a knee injury.

Alford had surgery on Friday to repair a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Alford was hurt two weeks ago in a preseason game in Chicago against the Bears, tearing his medial collateral ligament and partially tearing his ACL in the third quarter.

Dr. Russell Warren re-examined the knee on Friday and decided to reconstruct the ACL in a procedure at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.
