Hixon, McKenzie out for Giants

The Giants lost WR Domenik Hixon and RT Kareem McKenzie to injuries during the first half on Sunday against the Seahawks. The AP is reporting both players suffered concussions.

Hixon left the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit during the second quarter. He was hit by Seattle CB Josh Wilson after a 16-yard reception with 3:37 left in the half, and was down briefly on the field. Hixon, starting for the suspended Plaxico Burress, was able to walk off under his own power after being checked on by Giants trainers.

Hixon had four receptions for 102 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown reception.

McKenzie was replaced by OL Kevin Boothe.
