Down goes Aaron Ross

Giants starting cornerback Aaron Ross has gone down in practice on Tuesday morning with an apparent hamstring injury, according to both Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News and Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star Ledger.  (We eye-talians have an apparent hammerlock on the NFL reporting industry.)

Vacchiano tweets that Ross “crumpled to the ground” and “[l]et out a pretty loud yell, too.” 

Garafolo says it “didn’t look good” and that Ross was “not happy about it.”

Ross appeared in and started 15 regular-season games last year, his second in the NFL.  In 2007, he started nine regular-season games and three of four postseason games, including Super Bowl XLII.

    WTF, first Alford, ugh.. Giants have been pretty lucky with injuries compared to other teams, it might be catching up to them now.

    Come on Florio, you are big time now. It’s time to mix up your headlines a little bit. The “Down Goes Frazier!” style injury headline is pretty lame. This is at least the second time you’ve used it in two weeks.

    What a disaster this year is turning into. Amazing number of injuries. Makes you wonder about the trainers.

    The eye-talians probably have all the reporting jobs because the NFL is a huge gambling market and the mob runs the gambling. Just a guess.

    Finally. Someone else in the NFC East has injury problems. Certainly good news for D Jack.

    Andre Brown…Jay Alford…Chris Canty…..all done for the year. Now possibly Aaron Ross too – Yuck.
    Maybe Sam Madison has just turned up the ringer on his cell.

    Pretty soon these Giants injuries will off-set Eagles injuries. I’d rather watch the two teams play at full health, but whatever.

    Thomas has been having an excellent camp and was pushing Ross for starting time. Hope Aaron gets better, but Thomas might not relinquish the starting gig.

    GDR- Canty is not done for the season (yet). It’s a partially torn hammy, I believe. He may be back in late september.
    Also, I doubt this is a major injury for A. Ross. He’s had chronically bad hamstrings since being drafted by the Giants (hamstrings always seem to plague the Giants)… I’m sure he’ll be playing come week 1.

    When did they announce Canty out for the year?

    The Giants and the Eagles just want to give the “lesser teams” in their division a shot.
    Obviously the Cowboys and Redskins can’t compete while the two top dogs of the NFCE are at full health. These teams should be lauded for their commitment to parity in the league.

    Huge loss, if he’s gone for long. I agree with Levito, the hamstring problem is way too frequent and chronic for the Giants. At first, I thought it was just a run of bad luck. But the “hammy” issue has been plaguing this team for years now. I think the handwriting is on the wall that NY needs either some new trainers or, more likely, needs to identify the guys with chronic problems and do a much better jump of getting them warmed up and stretched out prior to hitting the field. Hamstring pulls are usually avoidable if a guy is properly prepared before playing.

    Oh just shut up and read the article. The title is fine.

    Funny, an Eagirls fan, a fan of a team with an overall losing record, talking about other teams that have
    a) overall winning records
    b) multiple Super Bowl wins
    and
    c) a combined record of 3-1 against the Eagirls last season
    as if they can’t compete.

  15. Jackal138 says: Aug 25, 2009 2:37 PM

    Keep crying, Cowboys fan.
    44-6 isn’t ancient history. Your SB wins are.

    The Cowboys haven’t done anything of value in the postseason this century. Go back to watching Braveheart and reliving the glory days Vox. This season doesn’t look to be any better for the Cowgirls.

    @ Levito and ChiJintsFan
    I mis-read the article…they announce Canty’s tear, not how long he was out.
    Maybe I am just fearing the injury bug too much.
