Giants celebration notes
By Mike Mazzeo
The only two Giants who did not participate in the festivities were cornerback Justin Tryon and wide receiver Domenik Hixon, who were both on season-ending injured reserve.
• Linebacker Mark Herzlich attended the parade but was not at the rally because he had to attend another function.
• Tight ends Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum sported crutches. The Giants announced Tuesday Ballard tore his ACL during the Super Bowl. Initially, team representatives thought it was a sprain. Beckum also tore his ACL in the game.
• Running back Brandon Jacobs took a lap around MetLife Stadium with the Lombardi Trophy so that fans could touch it. After he was done, he held it in the sky and let out a scream.
• Receiver Victor Cruz and safety Antrel Rolle were high-fiving fans around the stadium, while running back Ahmad Bradshaw and a couple of other players stayed late to sign autographs for as many fans as they could.
