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.”
