Giants put Aaron Ross on IR, activate Will Hill

AP

Last year was a “nice paid vacation to Florida” for Aaron Ross.

This year, his destination is injured reserve.

The Giants announced they placed the 31-year-old cornerback on injured reserve, ending his comeback after a year’s worth of cash-grab in Jacksonville (for which he later apologized for admitting out loud). He started a pair of games this season, but left last week’s loss with a back injury.

The Giants also released center Dallas Reynolds, and activated suspended safety Will Hill and promoted cornerback Charles James from the practice squad.

  1. The 2013 Giants season has now officially transitioned from disaster to debacle. Its transition to full out disgrace will probably happen after getting reamed by the bears next Thursday.

  2. Whoa! I didn’t even know Ross was hurt, but now he’s on IR?! Thats a sign of fear on the Giants’ part, because with Snee going on IR, Diehl coming back(which is bad enough in itself), and now Reynolds getting kicked to the curb after a few days, they are so thin in so many areas that a hangnail would end a season at this point.

    Heard some very good things about James though, and Hill is quite good when he’s not failing drug tests. Next man up!

  3. Too bad. I’m one of the few Giants fans that actually LIKES Ross, and thought he was playing better than most give him credit for. Oh well, time for the young guys to get some experience.

    As a Giants fan, all you can do is just suck it up and chalk this season up as a loss. It happens to the best of them. Except maybe the Patriots. They haven’t really missed a beat in the last 10 years or so. Impressive run.

  4. Another career ending injury.

    I too liked Ross. Played the run really well. Good in the zone but always shaky in man.

    I wanted Revis or Hall and when they were gone, Bowe. Kind of irritated with the pick at the time. But a SB was won and it all worked out.

    Good luck in life AR…

  5. The house Cleaning had to happen, At least we’ll never have to see Kevin Killdrives face anymore. Sorry Tom, but you brought this upon yourself. To many clowns for coaches.

    As far as Reese is concerned, he’s done a great job of picking late round #1’s and overall draft talent, But fell way short on Free agency.

    Bill Cowher, Come on Down!!!!!

  6. The vacation line would have been more of an insult if he were any good.

    Plus, after four games of this season we now know how desperate the giants were when they signed him.

    I’ve gotta disagree with regard to Reese and the draft. He really hasn’t done well drafting as the GM of this team, and it’s largely because he goes BPA over areas of need. For further proof, look at the LB’s and the OL. LB’s have been completely ignored in early rounds, and the OL turned into an old age home overnight, right in front of our eyes. He didn’t keep up with those areas at all, opting instead to take DE’s and DT’s in the early rounds, and it still isn’t paying off. 4 sacks in 4 games in 2013, and little to no pressure coming from the front 4.

    A lot of the guys from the SB teams were drafted by Ernie Accorsi, and while an argument can be made that Reese was the head of scouting at the time, he did not make the decisions that EA did. I wont even get into the cap debacle that Jerry has created, because it’ll only annoy me even more.

    “In Reese we trust”? Dont be so quick to believe it
