The New York Giants believe cornerback Aaron Ross will be able to play this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, despite suffering a concussion this past Sunday against the Falcons.
According to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, Ross didn’t have any concussion like symptoms on Monday and it’s not even clear if he really suffered one.
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin on Monday said that Ross was undergoing tests. He was asked if Ross suffered a concussion, and indicated that he was treated as if he did.
If Ross is unable to play this week, rookie Prince Amukamara will be forced to step in and play a big role against one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses. But right now, it looks like Ross should be OK.
