A thin Giants cornerback corps is going to be a little thinner for the rest of the season opener against the Cowboys.
Michael Coe, forced into the starting lineup because of injuries to Terrell Thomas and Prince Amukamara during training camp and preseason, has left the game in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury. Coe will not return, which leaves the Giants with Justin Tryon and rookie Jayron Hosley at corner with Corey Webster.
Coe had spent most of the night covering Miles Austin, who has had a quiet night. Webster, on the other hand, has given up long gains to Dez Bryant and Kevin Ogletree during what’s been a less successful night for the Giants’ best cornerback. The Giants will have to hope dipping so deep on the depth chart at corner doesn’t provide the Cowboys with an opportunity to seal the game.
The Cowboys lead 17-10 early in the fourth quarter and hope to avoid the kind of late mistakes that cost them so many games last season.
