Giants wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson is out for the season and likely part of offseason workouts with a torn right ACL, head coach Brian Daboll confirmed on Monday as New York opens a short week of preparation for a Thanksgiving game with the Dallas Cowboys.

Robinson caught nine passes for 100 yards on Sunday before he left the loss to the Detroit Lions. He ends his rookie season with 23 catches for 227 yards with one score in six games (three starts).

Wide receiver depth has been a constant concern for the Giants this season with purported No. 1 receiver Kenny Golladay bumped down the pecking order based on production and injuries.

The Giants traded 2021 first-round pick Kadarius Toney to the Chiefs for third- and sixth-round picks last month.

Sterling Shepherd was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 28 with a torn ACL, joining Collin Johnson among players at that position lost for the year. Johnson went on IR in August with a torn Achilles.

With more changes atop the depth chart, the Giants might be even more eager to sit down with Odell Beckham Jr. A free agent planning to take a closer look at his options starting this week, Beckham had ACL surgery following the Super Bowl in February.

He’s scheduled to meet in-person later this week with the Giants and Cowboys and could consider others, FOX Sports reported Sunday.
