Ross Still Slowed By Hamstring:


From Ralph Vacchiano:

Aaron Ross had his pads back on this morning, but he sounded like he won’t be putting them on again for at least a little while.

The Giants cornerback, who has been nursing an injured hamstring and missed Monday night’s preseason opener, said he could tell something wasn’t quite right during this morning’s light practice. So he won’t practice this afternoon and will be cautious about when he practices again.

“I’m torn between trying to get out there and rush myself back and practice, or rush myself and hurt it even more,” Ross said. “I’m sort of torn between that. I tried it today, but I can tell I wasn’t 100 percent. Maybe not even 80 yet. So I’ll get treatment. I still have four more practices to go. I’ll try to limit myself from taking a big risk and hurting it even more. So I’m going to just do what I can, staying safe, and seeing where it goes from there.”

Ross said he had an MRI on his hamstring and the doctor told him it was fine, but “I still needed to do some work on it.” In other words, there were no tears, but it obviously wasn’t quite ready for him to go full speed.

For what it’s worth, Ross said “I know I’ll be ready for Week 1” but he didn’t sound like he’d be ready for the Giants’ second preseason game, in Chicago on Saturday night.

I hope this isn’t one of those nagging hamstring injuries that hampers Ross all season.
