The struggling Giants secondary is going from bad to worse this week.
The team’s top cornerback Corey Webster hasn’t practiced because of a knee injury and is uncertain to face the Redskins Monday night. To replace Webster, the Giants were planning to move Aaron Ross back from safety to cornerback.
Now Ross is hurt too. Ross suffered a hamstring injury for the fourth time this year at practice Thursday, and sat out Friday’s session.
If they both miss the game, Terrell Thomas, rookie Bruce Johnson and Kevin Dockery (remember him?) will be New York’s top trio.
Jason Campbell has averaged 269 passing yards over this last four games, with seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Don’t be surprised if that average improves Monday night.
And don’t be surprised if a seven-loss team gets into the NFC playoffs. (We’re going to keep hammering this point until we’re right.)
