Giants coach Tom Coughiln said earlier this week that he was “optimistic” starting cornerback Aaron Ross would be able to play in Week One, despite a hamstring injury.
We’re “optimistic” that Coughlin should have been more pessimistic.
Ross is listed as out for the game against the Redskins.
Elsewhere on the Giants’ injury report, tackle Adam Koets (ankle) and linebacker Clint Sintim (groin) are doubtful, and cornerback Kevin Dockery (hamstring) is questionable.
For the Redskins, cornerback Carlos Rogers (calf) and tacke Mike Williams (ankle) are probable.
