Giants RB Brandon Jacobs back underwent surgery last month to repair a partially torn meniscus that hampered him all season. Looking back, he realizes he should have had the injury repaired after it occurred in in the opener against the Redskins.
"I would’ve got it done Week 1, missed four or five weeks and came back and played," Jacobs said at the Super Bowl media center.
So what did he learn from trying to play through it?
"Not to play hurt," Jacobs replied. "If something happens to you, no matter what it is, go and get it taken care of. Because things aren’t going to get better."
