Domenik Hixon has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second straight year.

The New York Giants wide receiver and punt returner underwent an MRI Tuesday and will require surgery.

Hixon said he initially thought he injured his right calf on his sensational 22-yard juggling touchdown catch in the second quarter of Monday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.

“It’s devastating,” he said of suffering the same injury two years in a row. “It’s a long road, a tough road. It still feels like a dream.”

Hixon tore the right knee ACL in June 2010, when he tried to make a cut and collapsed untouched on a punt return during the Giants’ first practice at their new stadium.

Wide receiver Mario Manningham also was examined by independent neurologist Dr. Teena Shetty and will undergo further examination and testing Wednesday after suffering a concussion Monday.

Manningham took a hit toward the end of the first half. He said his neck “stiffened” up, and he failed sideline concussion tests.
