EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants’ cornerback Eli Apple suffered an ankle injury Saturday against the New York Jets. After the game, coach Ben McAdoo said he injury was to the opposite ankle that had caused Apple to miss time earlier in the preseason.
“I have concerns about both ankles,” McAdoo said.
Apple has been having difficulty staying on the field. He missed the first preseason game and some practice time earlier with an ankle injury. The second-year corner missed two games last season.
Defensive tackle Jay Bromley left the game in the first half with what was called a knee sprain. Running back Shaun Draughn, seeing his first action of the preseason, left the game after catching a pass in the third quarter. He suffered both a concussion and a neck injury. Safety Duke Ihenacho left the game with a knee injury. Offensive lineman Adam Gettis left the game with a foot injury. Undrafted free agent defensive end Evan Schwan was carted off in the final two minutes with a left leg injury.
We will have much more on these injuries after the game when we are able to get information from head coach Ben McAdoo. Be sure to come back for that and the rest of our post-game coverage.
