Michael Coe done for night with hamstring injury

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.

    Where’s the big post about how bad replacement refs were?

    GIANTS going nowhere with Tryon at CB. Teams will spread the field just to get him in the game.

    If the Giants don’t get their secondary healthy and playing well, it won’t matter how good the front four are.

    They did a fine job last night. Actually they did a better job than the permanent refs. If we would have had them in, we would have add 10 or 12 stoppages so they could review tape to make sure they got it right, even though they should have got it right the first time.
    I for one think there are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many second and third decisions on plays. Call the dam thing and move on.

    the CBs were torched severely, including the CB referred to as the real shutdown corner in NY… i think Revis doesn’t have anything to worry about when it comes to losing the title.

    *Points to be made

    1. Cowboys played very well, with Jason Garrett calling plays that exposed a young, thin secondary.

    2. Don’t get on the Ogletree bandwagon yet though, as this certainly isn’t the best secondary unit at the moment.

    3. Giants also played extremely well on D-line, as well as o-line. Eli would’ve done better if it weren’t for one missed red-zone penalty, and two dropped catche by Cruz.

    4. Cowboys have a solid secondary. Clayborn, Jenkins, and Carr are all really good.
