Stevie Brown Tore His ACL, Done for the Season: The news on S Stevie Brown is as bad as feared. Brown tore the ACL in his left knee and is out for the season. Brown injured his knee after intercepting a pass in the preseason game against the Jets. Brown was untouched when his knee gave way.

“I feel badly for him,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He’s worked hard. He’s prepared himself well and been in a position where he’s made a lot of plays for us. We will definitely miss him.”

In other injury news, CB Jayron Hosley left Sunday’s game early with an ankle injury that apparently is not too serious. “I hope Hosley is able to come right back after what has not been determined as an ankle that will prevent him from working,” said Coughlin. “We’ll see how that goes tomorrow.”

Coughlin also said he hopes S Antrel Rolle (ankle) and CB Corey Webster (knee/groin) will return to practice this week. “Antrel is supposed to practice this week,” said Coughlin. “We’ll get him back on the field and get him working again…Webster will practice this week, and we’re hoping that we can work that out and get some stability there.”

Giants Reduce Roster to 75: The Giants have reduced their roster from 90 to 75 players.

The Giants placed S Stevie Brown (knee) on season-ending Injured Reserve.

The team also released the following 14 players:

  • FB Ben Guidugli (waived)
  • WR Brandon Collins (waived)
  • WR Terrell Sinkfield (waived)
  • TE Jamie Childers (waived)

August 13, 2013 New York Giants Training Camp Reports: The Giants held their 13th training camp practice on Tuesday afternoon at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. The next practice is on Wednesday from 1:30-3:45PM. For a complete training camp schedule and Giants.com Q&A guide, see the Training Camp section of the website.

Injury Update – Low Ankle Sprain for Rolle: Not practicing on Tuesday were RB Da’Rel Scott (shoulder), WR Jerrel Jernigan (soreness), WR Brandon Collins (hamstring), OL James Brewer (concussion), OT Chris DeGeare (ankle), DE Damontre Moore (shoulder), CB Corey Webster (soreness), S Antrel Rolle (ankle), S Cooper Taylor (hamstring), FB Henry Hynoski (PUP – knee), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (PUP – back), and DT Markus Kuhn (PUP – knee).

The good news on Rolle, who is wearing a walking boot, is that his ankle injury is not a high ankle sprain. However, the injury appears to be a significant sprain with no immediate timetable for his return.

“It’s a pretty good sprain,” said Rolle. “I always said that if I can’t get up and I can’t walk off on my own, then it’s pretty bad. For right now, just from yesterday (to) today, it feels 10 times better.”

“(I want to be back) as soon as possible,” said Rolle. “There’s no timeframe at the moment but as soon as possible. I’m a hard worker, on the field and off the field. I’m not a fan of injuries, I really hate to even speak about this, but it happens in this game. I’m just going to do the best I can, try to get out there before the preseason’s over with and take it one day at a time.”

When asked if he might miss the regular-season opener, Rolle responded, “Oh no. No, I’m going to do whatever it takes to make sure. That’s not even a possibility.”

“It’s not a high ankle sprain, that’s for sure,” said Rolle. “I had a high ankle sprain before and there are no similarities at all. Thank God.”

Roster Moves: FB Ryan D’Imperio has decided to retire and the Giants have placed him on the Reserve/Retired List. To fill his roster spot, the Giants signed FB Ben Guidugli.
