Barden, Ross and Johnson injured, Rashad and Ware getting better

WR Ramses Barden has a stress fracture of a transverse process, S Michael Johnson has a disc issue and CB Aaron Ross has plantar fasciitis. (Eli) Manning suffered the same injury as Ross last year, but did not miss anytime but was limited in his first action afterward. Barden and Johnson missed the Steelers game but Ross, who had three separate hamstring tears last season, played.

All three are unlikely to get back on the field this week. They will be evaluated week-to-week.

Ramses Barden could miss roughly a month. If you recall, Jon Goff had the same injury, but worse and missed a month. Sinorice Moss and Victor Cruz have a much better chance at making the team now.

Aaron Ross will likely miss the game against the Ravens, and could miss the remainder of the pre-season. The injury Ross had, which Eli Manning had also, is tougher to play with on the defensive side of the ball because there’s more running and cutting. I had the same injury, and let me tell you, it’s painful. However, you can play on it.

Michael Johnson will likely miss the pre-season game against the Ravens, and could also be out the remainder of the pre-season. Johnson who adds depth the secondary could be back by opening day.

Safety Sha’reff Rashad, who was given the start against the Steelers Saturday night, suffered a concussion on his first play, but said adrenaline probably allowed him to finish the series.

“I definitely wanted to make an impression as quickly as I could,” Rashad said. “I paid the price for that.”

Tailback D.J. Ware, who also suffered a concussion, was not in the locker room.

    I had plantar fasc. as well. As long as he stretches for a minute a few times a day and ices it once or twice a day, Ross will be fine. Mine went away quick. After a week of ice and stretching there was no pain. The bone spurs are still there, of course, but I stretch every morning for one minute and I’m good for the day.

    My dad also had it about 5 years ago and was telling me that he iced it, took some medicine, and stretched daily, and although the pain didnt go away for a while, it definitely improved over time and was able to walk normally on it.
    Then again, that’s not running and cutting.
