The Giants announced during Sunday’s win that cornerback Aaron Ross suffered a concussion against the Falcons.
The team also saw safety Deon Grant in and out of the lineup with a groin injury, so there has to be some concern about the secondary heading into Green Bay.
Coach Tom Coughlin sounded optimistic after the game. He said Ross “counted fingers for me” which is a good sign.
Then again, the NFL’s post-concussion testing procedures are a lot more involved than simply counting fingers.
The Giants present some matchup problems for the Packers with their improved running game and peaking defensive line. But there is no matchup advantage as big as Green Bay’s passing attack against the Giants secondary, especially if the Giants secondary isn’t healthy.
