Antrel Rolle Injury Update: Safety sheds walking boot

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Antrel Rolle is already out of a walking boot and aims to play in a preseason game after injuring his ankle on Monday.

The best news of the day from New York Giants training camp is that safety Antrel Rolle, who sprained an ankle on Monday, showed up at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center Wednesday without the walking boot he had Tuesday -- or even a wrap on the injured leg.

"The boot is for wimps, man.  I’m not a wimp," Rolle said, jokingly. "Nah, I mean I’m just taking it as it goes.  The first day was obviously the worst and I’ve been grinding til about three in the morning, since it’s happened. Just trying to get better."

Rolle said the ankle feels "a million times better" than it did on Monday, and that he hopes to play in a preseason game.

"I don’t know what everyone else’s expectations are, but if I can play, I’m going to go. It doesn’t matter if it’s this week, doesn’t matter if it’s next week, doesn’t matter if it’s week one. I’ve never been the kind of guy that is going to milk an injury. If I can go, I’m going to go," he said.

"I don’t even like missing practices, so I do everything I can do to get back in shape, to get back in form, and get out here with my guys. If it means staying up til three o’ clock in the morning every night, then that is what I’m going to do."

Rolle admitted he feared the worst when the injury initially happened, calling it "one of the worst pains I’ve felt probably in my lifetime."

"I didn’t think anything could feel worse than me running into the camera against Carolina, but I think this definitely topped it. "Once it happened, my foot was just trembling, shaking, I really didn’t know what to expect," Rolle said.
