Giants waived/injured CB Brian Witherspoon.

Attempting to return after missing the entire 2011 season, Witherspoon re-injured his left ACL in the Giants' first spring practice on Wednesday. The Giants confirmed that ACL is torn once again, which will prevent another team from claiming Witherspoon off waivers.

Giants CB Brian Witherspoon re-injured his ACL in Wednesday's practice.

Witherspoon had to be carted off the field in the team's first practice of OTAs. It's tough luck for a player who was facing an uphill battle to make the final roster.

Giants waived/injured CB Brian Witherspoon.

Set for surgery on September 16, Witherspoon tore his ACL in the second preseason game. Witherspoon has always been more of a kick returner than cornerback, but his injury highlights the Giants' lack of depth in the secondary after losing three corners earlier in camp.

Giants signed CB/KR Brian Witherspoon.

Witherspoon worked out for the Giants earlier this season but wasn't signed. He replaces Will Blackmon (knee), who has landed on injured reserve.

Panthers waived CB Brian Witherspoon.

Witherspoon, who has bounced around the Lions and Jaguars, was beaten out by rookie seventh-rounder Robert McClain.

Panthers signed CB Brian Witherspoon, formerly of the Lions.

Witherspoon was waived earlier in the day. In Carolina, he'll compete for playing time in the dime package and possibly help on returns. The 25-year-old from Stillman has experience returning both kickoffs and punts.

Lions waived CB Brian Witherspoon.

Acquired off waivers from the Jags last December, Witherspoon was low on the depth chart even in Detroit's league-worst secondary. The 25-year-old could resurface elsewhere as a special teams and kickoff return prospect.
Fri, Apr 16, 2010 03:32:00 PM

Lions claimed CB/KR Brian Witherspoon on waivers from the Jaguars.

This is the fallout from Aaron Brown landing in coach Jim Schwartz's doghouse. Witherspoon will likely take over both kickoff returns and punt returns for the Lions. If healthy, he's a significant upgrade.
Tue, Dec 15, 2009 06:04:00 PM

Jaguars waived CB/KR Brian Witherspoon.

Witherspoon was an explosive kickoff return man as an undrafted rookie in 2008, but battled injuries all this season and never helped Jacksonville on defense. He'll likely get another shot elsewhere on an offseason roster.
Mon, Dec 14, 2009 04:20:00 PM

Jaguars KR/DB Brian Witherspoon left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Coach Jack Del Rio said that Witherspoon "would be a question mark coming out of the bye," but added that "it's just too early to tell."
Mon, Oct 19, 2009 10:08:00 AM

Jaguars declared DB Brian Witherspoon, DB William Middleton, DB Courtney Greene, LB Adam Seward, OG Kynan Forney, OT Jordan Black, DL Jeremy Navarre, and Brian Iwuh inactive.

Rashad Jennings will likely return kickoffs with slot receiver Mike Thomas on punt returns.

Bills special teams coach Bobby April is impressed with Jaguars return ace Brian Witherspoon.

Drafters of the Jags often mercurial fantasy defense are in for a pleasant surprise with Witherspoon. The undrafted rookie used his 4.3 speed to average 41.3 yards per kickoff return and 22.5 yards on two punt returns in Week 1 against the Titans.
