Rolle, Webster escaped serious injuries

The only thing wrong with the Giants 36-7 win over the Panthers last night was they added a few injuries to the pile.

But the defensive backs they can ill afford to lose don’t seem to be long-term problems.

Cornerback Corey Webster suffered a broken bone in his right hand, but returned to the field with a large black cast.

I came back in the game and finished playing,” Webster said, via Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. “It’s probably going to be a little tough to catch. But we’re going to do our best.”

Webster said he didn’t think the injury happened during his early scrum with Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith, and was encouraged he could still play bump and run.

“It’s a little heavier now,” Webster said of his hand, “so I got a little more thump in it.”

Rolle cut his left knee hurdling a camera late in the game, but said afterward he needed to “toughen up.”

“A bad bruise on the knee, that’s all I got right now,” Rolle said. “If I got taken out by a camera. I’m not too happy about that.”

The Giants also had some hamstring issues, with linebacker Keith Rivers leaving the game and not returning and cornerback Jayron Hosley hobbling off as well.

    Pierre Garcon will roast the NYG secondary with ease. The Giants should be 1-2 and will still miss the playoffs. Believe that.

    Apparently the guilty camera was an NFLN camera. Maybe OSHA should start restricting the location of camera equipment and people on sidelines and endzones. It’s ridiculous that they are allowed to impede players. In most cases they make no attempt to get out of harms way.

    Re the camera issue:

    Did anyone else catch one of the NFL Net guys saying “hey look you’ll get a great view of it because he hit our guy”

    Followed by “that should never be allowed to happen”

    Brilliant. NFL Net really needs new commentators.

    @voiceofreasonsays:

    Yeah because breaking all kinds of team and league records over the past 5 quarters means they really suck right?

    Stop the injuries for NYG. I don’t want any excuses for why they miss the playoffs like they SHOULD have last year.

    little to no street cred left for a man who is taken out by a camera. Antrel will be ready by next sunday.
