Secondary suffers more injuries in win

9/21/2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Giants' banged-up secondary got a little more banged up Thursday night.

The most serious injury was to starting cornerback Corey Webster, who broke a bone in his right hand and had it heavily taped, with a splint running along his index finger.

Webster could not remember exactly when the injury occurred, but said it may have happened while he was engaged in something of a wrestling match with the Panthers' Steve Smith following a play.

In any event, Webster said he would "definitely" play in the Giants' next game, a week from Sunday against the Eagles.

Jayron Hosley, who started opposite Webster at cornerback, left the game with a hamstring problem early in the fourth quarter, after a fine performance that included the rookie's first interception.

Hosley called the injury to his left leg "just a little tweak," and said he would get it checked out more thoroughly Friday.

Also, safety Antrel Rolle crashed out of bounds in the final quarter, colliding with a cameraman. His left knee smacked into the camera. "I don't know if I hit the camera or the camera hit me," said Rolle, who suffered lacerations but didn't think the injury would sideline him.

"I'm gonna make it; I just gotta get a little bit tougher, man," he said with a groan. "It's cut up and a bad bruise. For a camera to take me out, I'm not too proud about that."

Cornerback Michael Coe was inactive for the game with a sore hamstring. But fellow corner Prince Amukamara made his season debut, wound up playing much of the game, and felt pretty good when it was over.
