At this point, you have to begin to wonder how much football Aaron Ross will play for the New York Giants this season.
Ross, the cornerback who is trying to come back from a lingering hamstring injury, is back on the shelf after trying to practice Wednesday.
"It just didn’t feel right," Ross said of the right hamstring that has been bothering him since early in training camp and has kept him out of all three regular season games this year. "I tried to go out there but the leg’s still not ready yet so we have to be smart."
Ross said he believed he would be able to practice on Wednesday. "I really did," he said, "but it happens for a reason."
Ross also said he did not re-injure the hamstring. "It’s just a little frustrating, that’s it," he said.
Coach Tom Coughlin had much better news on several other injured players in his Thursday meeting with reporters. Kevin Dockery, Hakeem Nicks and Clint Sintim have all returned to practice.
