Hip injury to CB Corey Webster may force Giants to adjust secondary for Panthers game

The Carolina Panthers aren't the only team having issues in the secondary for this weekend's game with the New York Giants.

Tom Coughlin's squad has a problem, too.

Starting cornerback Corey Webster missed his second straight practice on Friday with a hip flexor and his status for the game between the two winless teams Sunday is doubtful.

Coughlin refused to name a replacement for Webster Friday, but it is likely that veteran Aaron Ross will get the call over second-year cornerback Jayron Hosley.

Ross did not play a down on defense in the Giants' 41-23 loss to the Broncos last Sunday. The former first-round pick played on special teams but watched as coordinator Perry Fewell used Terrell Thomas in the slot and played linebacker Jacquain Williams in run-pass coverage.
