Moss Out For Rest of Mini-Camp

Bad news on the injury front. Mini-Camp star Sinorice Moss is out for the rest of mini-camp with a hurt hamstring. Ralph Vacchiano has the details, along with other injury notes:

Sinorice Moss, who strained his hamstring during the final drill of Tuesday’s afternoon practice, will remain on the sidelines for the rest of this three-day mini-camp.

That’s big blow for the 5-8 receiver who had become the star of the Giants’ spring practices. His first three years in the NFL were ruined by an assortment of injuries. Now, just as he was starting to get serious practice reps, the timing couldn’t be worse for him to get injured again.

“It’s unfortunate,” Tom Coughlin said. “He was getting a lot of snaps and was doing something with them.”

Moss isn’t alone on the sidelines, of course. And Coughlin expressed his frustration in general with the number of injuries currently plaguing the Giants. Today, there were 13 players not participating: Moss (hamstring), CB Corey Webster (shoulder), TE Travis Beckum (hamstring), LB Chase Blackburn (hamstring), CB Kevin Dockery (unknown), WR David Tyree (hamstring), DT Rocky Bernard (shoulder), DT Fred Robbins (knee), DT Barry Cofield (knee), OT William Beatty (hamstring), WR Taye Biddle (finger), TE Lee Vickers (unknown), and LB Clint Sintim (hamstring).

On the bright side, CB Aaron Ross (ankle) was back at work after missing the practice on Tuesday afternoon

My Take: Damn. Moss was really showing us something. His separation skills, which were heralded out of college, were finally starting to show up. He had been nagged by injuries his whole career, which is part of the reason he hasn’t produced like we expected. Hopefully it isn’t too serious, and he can be back by training camp.
