INDIANAPOLIS — New York Giants tight end Travis Beckum has been knocked out of the Super Bowl game with a right knee injury.

The Giants say the backup tight end tore his right anterior cruciate ligament with 12:55 left in the first half on Sunday. It's not clear how Beckum was hurt. The injury happened away from the play, a short pass out of the backfield. Two trainers had to help Beckum off the field.
