EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Running back Brandon Jacobs is going to miss the New York Giants' season-ending game against the Minnesota Vikings with an injury to his right knee.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Wednesday announced that Jacobs will have arthroscopic surgery next week. The coach said Jacobs has had problems with the knee at times this season, but a recent examination showed he needed surgery.

Jacobs, who led the Giants in rushing the past two seasons, had an inconsistent year, rushing for 835 yards on 224 carries. However, his yards per rush has slipped more than a yard to 3.7 yards a carry.

Ahmad Bradshaw will replace Jacobs in the starting lineup.
