New York Giants Safety Antrel Rolle Carted Off Field After Suffering Ankle Injury

Practice was moving along at a good pace … and then it wasn't. In the blink of an eye, good feelings changed at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center as New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle crumbled into a heap on the grass on Monday. The veteran had gotten himself tangled up with tight end Bear Pascoe during some drills and appeared to roll his ankle.

The training staff was quick to attend to him, as Stevie Brown and Perry Fewell stood near, but he would eventually need to be helped off the field. He was then quickly put on a cart and taken away towards the locker-room, although he did not appear to be in significant pain.

Ryan Mundy would take his place on the first-team defense.

"It's obviously bothering him. He must have stepped on it. They stepped on each other’s feet, you know? It was like a rebound drill. Honestly, I didn’t see it until he was sitting down," Coughlin said after practice, adding that Rolle was being examined. "Hopefully it's an ankle and he's coming right back."

Coughlin added that an MRI will be conducted to determine the severity of Rolle's injury, which would imply that X-rays had already been done. That could also lead you to believe that the first hurdle has been surpassed and that it's not a break.

In his three years with the Giants, Rolle has not missed a single regular season or playoff game due to injury.

Update: Ralph Vacchiano reports the initial diagnosis on Antrel Rolle is a sprained ankle, but he's still scheduled for an MRI. Team hoping it's nothing worse.

    Ralph Vacchiano ?@RVacchianoNYDN 8m
    DE Damontre Moore is not practicing today. Not sure why. CB Corey Webster, S Cooper Taylor, G James Brewer also still out.

    hopefully it’s nothing and was just carted off for precautionary measures.

  4.  BigBlueGiant says:

    What happened to Rogers? Did he mistake his hand/wrist for part of that Meatball Parm Hero?

  5.  JimStoll says:

    Aaron Ross moves to 3d safety w/o Rolle
    Mundy to the No. 2 safety
    let’s hope this is temporary

    Curious how Deihl did in pass protection on Saturday night?

    I mentioned last week that I think he’s washed up and is no longer capable of playing in the NFL due to the trun style he was last season.

    Only saw the Cruz highlight in which, surprise surprise, DD got beat right off the edge. But for those that watched the whole game, how did DD play?

    Also regarding the OL, and GOAT has mentioned this, there is absolutely no reason why Pugh shouldn’t be able to come in and start right away. Other than Beatty this is a bad offensive line. The #19 overall pick should not have a problem taking a job from Boothe, Bass, Snee, or Deihl. If he isn’t starting week 1 it either means he was not as NFL ready as JR thought or Coughlins veteran bias has reached an intervention level.

    Deihl’s guy had a pressure on Eli other than that Deihl dominated the guy.

  9.  BigBlueGiant says:

    another practice missed by JJ.

    Ralph V. said he gets the feeling the Giants are not worried about Rolle and the MRI is only precautionary
    let’s hope
