Ross Hospitalized with Concussion

From Newark Star-Ledger:

“On a conference call minutes ago, Giants coach Tom Coughlin revealed CB Aaron Ross was hospitalized last night with a concussion suffered against the Panthers. Coughlin said Ross, who had blurred vision, was slated to be released this afternoon.


“He got dinged pretty good,” Coughlin said.

Ross was replaced by Kevin Dockery. It’s unclear at this point if he will be ready to play on Sunday against the Vikings.

In other injury news, Coughlin said RB Brandon Jacobs (knee), DT Fred Robbins (shoulder) and WR Domenik Hixon (foot/ankle) were probably sore today but he indicated none of those players appears to have suffered further damage to their injuries.

As to whether those injured guys will play in a game that means nothing with regard to seeding, Coughlin wouldn’t say yes or no just yet. And when asked if he’d play starters who weren’t injured in a game in which there’s “nothing to be gained,” Coughlin cut the question short and replied, “I disagree with you that there’s nothing to be gained.” I’d give you the rest of that quote but my recorder just died and I can’t find fresh batteries. I will tell you it had to do with playing your best football going into the playoffs. Yep, I’m thinking guys like Jacobs and Robbins might sit down, but any starter that’s healthy had better be ready to play on Sunday.”
