NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Coach Tom Coughlin doesn’t think the Giants suffered any significant injuries in Sunday’s NFC division game with the Green Bay Packers Sunday.
Coughlin said Monday a couple of players the usual post-game aches and pains but there didn’t seem to be anything to be concerned about for Sunday’s NFC title game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Defensive tackle Chris Canty walked away from his locker quickly Monday and said “the proof was in the pudding” when asked about a knee he hurt in the fourth quarter.
“I heard that, I heard that,” Canty said after the same Sunday, responding to fans’ boos in Green Bay who thought the injury could have been faked. “The fans pay their money, they’re entitled to cheer as they see fit or boo as they see fit. It’s unfortunate they won’t be able to cheer next week.”
Cornerback Aaron Ross was befuddled by leg cramps he experienced in the cold. Safety Deon Grant was examined for a concussion but returned. Linebacker Chase Blackburn left with a stinger but also returned.
“I am pretty good, I just got a little helmet to the thigh, but it’s nothing a little ice can’t heal,” said wide receiver Victor Cruz, who was unconcerned about a quad injury.
