New York GiantslinebackerRyan Connelly‘s promising rookie season is over after four games.

The team announced the fifth-round draft pick tore his ACL in Sunday’s win over theRedskins. The season-ending injury cuts short what had been a fast start for Connelly.

Making his third consecutive start, the inside linebacker recorded his second interception in as many games. Connelly also has two tackles for loss, including a sack, and 20 tackles overall.

Big Blue gained a player on the other side of the ball Monday. Wide receiverGolden Tate,who served a four-game suspensionfor PEDs, returned to the team facility.

The 10th-year veteran is eligible to make hisGiantsdebut this weekend against theVikings.

“He should be fresh and ready to go,” coach Pat Shurmur told reporters.

Smith already has been ruled out for this Sunday’s game against thePackers, per Rapoport, but he has not been ruled out for Week 6 against theJets. Jerry Jones told reporters after theSaintsgame that Smith was dealing with a “high ankle” situation, but Rapoport reports the injury does not appear to have the standard 4-6 week timeline associated with high ankle sprains.
