McClain (foot) carted off, X-rays negative
By Mike Mazzeo
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jameel McClain, who was carted off the field on Tuesday, the first day of New York Giants' training camp, underwent X-rays on his foot, which were negative, a source told ESPN.com’s Josina Anderson.
The source told Anderson that if McClain experiences soreness on Wednesday, the team may follow up with an MRI.
McClain has been subbing in for the recovering Jon Beason at middle linebacker.
“He thought it was a foot issue, an irritation of the foot, but it was one of the metatarsals, so the medical staff came over to look at that,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “It will be interesting to see what the discussion is inside.”
McClain is expected to start at strongside linebacker but moved to the middle with Beason coming back from a foot injury, which he suffered during organized team activities. Mark Herzlich also has experience playing middle linebacker.
“I’m hoping that this is just a matter of a sore foot with Jameel, so we’ll see,” Coughlin said.
