    Tuck on Ross: "He'll Play" but..



    He is Mr. Tuck, not Dr. Tuck.




    Hope he is right.




    Even with their fearsome pass rush healthy and fully operational, the 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 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 Justin Tuck told reporters in East Rutherford, N.J., today "he'll play" 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.




    Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Ross and running back D.J. 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.

    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.

    [/quote] Ross isn't nearly as bad a corner as people on here make him out to be. 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.
