New York Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty suffered a knee injury during Sunday's loss against the Baltimore Ravens, and would not return to the game after being removed. On Monday, team doctors diagnosed Canty with a sprained MCL. The injury is to the same knee that caused Canty to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, forcing him to miss the first six games of the season.
Canty left the game after posting a season high six tackles. As of right now, it is unclear if Canty will be able to play Sunday against the Eagles.
"We will have to see how he responds," head coach Tom Coughlin said.
If he is unable to go Sunday, the Giants will likely start Rocky Bernard in his place. Canty admitted his knee has certainly felt better, and is waiting for further testing.
"It's been better," Canty said. "We have to go and get it looked at, and we will see what's what."
Coughlin also hopes running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who played Sunday with a sore knee, came out of the game healthy.
"Hopefully there is no setback," Coughlin said.
