The Giants lost wide receiver Collin Johnson for the season with a torn Achilles tendon during Wednesday’s practice, per the team.
The 6-6, 220-pound big receiver out of the University of Texas had been receiving first-team reps in recent weeks at practice with Kadarius Toney and Shannon Shepard among those on the sideline.
Coach Brian Daboll had noted earlier in the week that Johnson and fellow wide receiver David Sills were making a strong impression.
Johnson started Sunday’s preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals and had three receptions for 41 yards; Sills had five catches for 56 yards, with most of the damage coming with the first-string offense.
