Veteran starting safety Antrel Rolle carted off with apparent ankle injury
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – New York Giants veteran safety Antrel Rolle has been carted off the practice field after apparently hurting his right ankle at training camp.
Rolle was covering tight end Bear Pascoe on a pass near the right sideline. Both went up to catch a high pass and Rolle landed awkwardly and fell to the grass. He got up but had trouble putting weight on his leg.
Trainers and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell ran to see what happened. After his shoe and sock were removed, Rolle winced when pressure was applied to his ankle.
He was helped off the field and examined further before being carted off. Rolle has not missed a game in three seasons with the Giants, leading them the past two years in tackles.
