August 25, 2010 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were QB Jim Sorgi (shoulder), HB D.J. Ware (concussion), WR Ramses Barden (back), H-Back Travis Beckum (neck), OG Kevin Boothe (PUP – chest), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (groin), DT Chris Canty (groin), LB Chase Blackburn (knee), CB Terrell Thomas (calf), CB Aaron Ross (foot), S Michael Johnson (back), and S Sha’reff Rashad (concussion).
It appears that Aaron Ross, who has a plantar fascia tear (contrary to what Head Coach Tom Coughlin said yesterday), is done for the preseason and that the painful injury may nag him all season.
Here are some other tidbits:
- Terrell Thomas: “He was sore, so we’re just giving him some recovery,” said Coughlin. “The calf thing has been bugging him.”
- Chris Canty: “(No update) other than the fact that the MRI did not show anything of great significance and hopefully he’ll come along fast,” said Coughlin.
- Jim Sorgi: “Icing, rehabbing, just trying to get healthy for next Thursday (the preseason finale),” said Sorgi. “There are some things I can do. There are some things I can’t do. Trying to stay away from things that irritate it and playing it because you don’t want to set yourself back right now.”
- Ramses Barden: “The diagnosis was good and (the doctor) said there’s no nerve damage, and no threat of nerve damage as long as I take the proper precautions on the front end, which is what we’re doing right now,” said Barden. “I’ve been staying off the field, wearing a little brace, and trying to do some extra core work. I’m trying to come back as soon as possible… No exact timetable (for my return)… Right now, we might be in that stage where it could get worse, so we’re taking the proper precautions. When I can go full, I can’t wait. I’m in the pool right now doing some running and swimming and trying to keep everything else strong and ready.”
OC Shaun O’Hara (ankle) and RG Chris Snee (knee) appeared limited in practice.
