Giants injury report: Secondary banged up
By Dan Graziano ESPN.com
KANSAS CITY -- New York Giants cornerbacks Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and Aaron Ross (back) left Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs with their injuries and did not return to the game. No word immediately after the game on the severity of the injuries, but obviously if they linger they will leave the Giants very thin in the secondary. Ross was starting in place of Corey Webster, who missed his second straight game with a hip injury. Rookie safety Cooper Taylor (shoulder) also was inactive for Sunday's game, leaving the Giants with only two active safeties.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul left the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury and did not return. Pierre-Paul was jogging on the sidelines late in the game and walked out of the locker room without any noticeable limp, so it seems likely the Giants dodged a bullet there. They called it a "knee contusion" and said he was probable to return, though as I mentioned here, he did not.
Linebacker Mark Herzlich was in a walking boot after the game. He had an X-Ray on his foot and has a toe injury. The X-Ray was negative, but he'll have further tests Monday.
