Antrel Rolle said knee pain is “lingering” after hitting camera

Antrel Rolle never imagined his knee would still be sore three weeks after slamming into a cameraman in Charlotte.

But the Giants safety said Tuesday on WFAN (via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News) that the knee is a “lingering” issue.

Now you know why Giants coach Tom Coughlin was upset, and wondered why photographers were so close.

Rolle hasn’t missed any time, but said the knee is still sore, “definitely better” but still not 100 percent heading into this week’s game against the 49ers.

“It’s a battle,” Rolle said. “It’s a constant battle each and every day. . . . With this knee injury, it’s going to take some time. I never thought it would be this crucial. It’s just a lintering process. Nothing too serious. But something that lingers around a little bit.”

Rolle said he’d be “fine” Sunday, but he’s not the only ailing member of the Giants secondary.

Safety Kenny Phillips isn’t expected back, and corners Jayron Hosley (hamstring), Michael Coe (hamstring) and Corey Webster (hand/hamstring) will be on the injury report as well.

    How ironic the first time this guy hits anything it happens to be a camera…And he gets hurt…

    … And its never pointed out that A. He was pushing a player who was already out of bounds when it happened and 2. He wasn’t wearing the required knee pads.

    I agree with Tom, lets move the camera… All the way to a soccer pitch. #NFLstartingtosuck

    I watch that play on TV as it happen, What I wondered was why Rolle say fit to run many yards out of bounce just to push the ball carrier lightly in the back. If he lets up as soon as the guy goes out of bounds, then there is no issue as he would have slipped after pushing the guy.

    Rolle is talked with an attorney and is currently justifying his post retirement lawsuit.

    This will be the Giants excuse for losing now. Our secondary is banged up. 49ers are going to spank you guys on Sunday

    It obvious he’s putting out this injury to justify why Vernon Davis scores 3 long TD’s on him Sunday. Get ready b/c the Niners are still pissed about the NFC Championship Game. Trust me, there will no kneeling down at the three yard line this game, full throttle. This game I think Harbaugh will unleash Moss…..Can’t wait till Sunday….

    Built in excuse maybe? Last year he ran his mouth about Vernon Davis and in turn Vernon Davis stole his lunch while burning him for a deep TD. I expect another close hard fought battle not an ass kicking, but I also expect this Rolle to get beat over the top again. It happened repeatedly in AZ and it happened in both games last year.

    We have cameras that can take pictures of the Earth’s surface from outer space. Do we really need a camera guy an inch from the sideline?

    I’ve seen the play a bunch…Rolle ran out of bounds (on purpose) and SHOVES the other player INTO the camera man (intent to injure) …instead the player isn’t hurt and Rolle is……Karma at it’s finest!
