He is Mr. Tuck, not Dr. Tuck.</P>


Hope he is right.</P>



Even with their fearsome pass rush healthy and fully operational, the <FONT color=#225db7>New York Giants</FONT> (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/nyg/new-york-giants) would prefer to have a healthy secondary for Sunday's playoff game against the defending champion Packers in Green Bay. Starting cornerback <FONT color=#225db7>Aaron Ross</FONT> (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10464/aaron-ross) left Sunday's victory over Atlanta with a concussion, which by definition means there's a question about whether he can play against the Packers. Giants defensive end <FONT color=#225db7>Justin Tuck</FONT> (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/8488/justin-tuck) told reporters in <FONT color=#225db7>East Rutherford, N.J., today "he'll play</FONT> (http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/7443138/new-york-giants-aaron-ross-dj-ware-go-concussion-protocol)" in reference to a question about what losing Ross would mean to the defense, but Tuck is not a doctor and therefore doesn't get to decide that. </P>


Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Ross and running back <FONT color=#225db7>D.J. Ware</FONT> (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10768/dj-ware), who also left Sunday's game with a concussion, are being evaluated and treated according to the NFL's procedures for treating concussions. That means it's kind of out of the hands of Ross, Ware, the Giants and even Tuck whether those players can play Sunday. The NFL requires players who have suffered concussions to be cleared by an independent neurologist and to pass various tests throughout the week before being cleared to practice or play.

When do they make the decision? I suppose that since we haven't heard anything it's not definite either way.

find it kinda funny that we actually want Ross to play lol.. he's been getting trashed all year on this board.

I'm not saying he's a good corner, but he certainly stepped up his game from last year. I think he just isn't comfortable in the slot. Did a decent job on Julio yesterday

Yeah, we trashed Ross cause he isnt that good in his craft, but we want him back because we remember Blackmon on Jordy Nelson about a month ago.</P>

They have to be cleared by an independent medical expert.

As I understand, they'll evaluate and "grade" the level of concussion. If it's bad enough, they may rule the player out for the following game (at least). Or, if a lesser grade, they may want to reevaluate again later in the week before clearing the player.

The danger is, having another cuncussive trauma in the next game. Having two "minor" concussions close together is worse. That's the concern, and no one can say for sure that won't happen because it always can.

Most likely, neither will play.

Last year he sucked i'll give you that. Not every player can be Revis or even C-Web

Ross will be close to a game time decision I think. He could be experiencing headaches thoughout the week. I'm not sure what criteria the team doctors use, but I would imagine his status will be up in the air for the time being.

Lets hope the dr's that make the decision are not like the GB loving refs.

You know our secondary is lacking when we're praying that Ross plays this wknd...lol

He really is our weakest link on the defense when it comes to starters

BUT....w/ that said...

We need you for the GB game AR31!!! lol...

I was thinking the same thing -- 90% of us (including myself) were tired of Ross, but he and the entire D are playing so much more solidly. Let's face it -- the play of the D line changes everything.

I felt bad for Ross -- he had a darn good rookie season. The only reason that I could figure his regression were injuries. Maybe playing under two DCs (Sheridan and Fewell) set him back as well. I don't know.

But if he continues to be solid, I wouldn't mind brining him back at all. Seems like a good guy, too. Funny how Web came out of nowhere in '07. Maybe it's Ross's time to come out and shine just at the right time (and earn a big fat contract in the process).

the one everyone should be worrying about is Prince not Ross. I think Prince will be a good player (he was an all american for !@#$% sake) I don't think he's ready yet though. Hopefully with a full off season program and training camp he will get better.

Now do we take a gamble on T2? I really like Terrell but coming back from 2 torn acl's in the same knee is gonna be a long shot

We either have to resign T2 or Ross, or draft a corner relatively high to keep up with today's high powered offenses like Green Bay, Saints, Colts (when Peytons healthy) etc.

I also say give Witherspoon another chance, this kid was doing awesome in training camp and preseason.
