The New York Giants lost to the Detroit Lions 31-18 on Sunday to fall to 7-3 on the season. 

To make matters worse, the team received a devastating injury update on a key defensive contributor Monday afternoon. 

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Giants' cornerback Adoree' Jackson suffered an MCL sprain in New York's Week 11 loss and will likely miss the next 4-6 weeks. 

"#Giants CB Adoree' Jackson is out 4-6 weeks with an MCL sprain, source said. Rough loss, even rougher injury day for the GMen," Rapoport tweeted Monday. 

Jackson left Sunday's contest versus Detroit in the second quarter. 

After returning a punt for just three yards, the corner and punt return specialist struggled to get off the field under his own power and was ruled out for the rest of the game. 

Unfortunately for New York, Jackson's injury wasn't the only one in Sunday's loss to the Lions. 

Rookie wideout Wan'Dale Robinson suffered a season-ending ACL tear in the defeat while another defensive back, Fabian Moreau, left the game with a rib injury. 

Giants' head coach Brian Daboll faced criticism following the loss after several reporters pointed out the risk involved in trotting out the team's top corner on punt return duties. 

Daboll simply answered, "Look, it's football. Obviously, it was unfortunate." 

The Giants recently depleted secondary will be put to the test on Thanksgiving Day against the Dallas Cowboys.
