EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants receiver Domenik Hixon has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second straight year.

The team said Hixon will have surgery in the near future.

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.
