Giants safety Antrel Rolle said he's unsure if he'll be able to play Sunday against the Eagles, after suffering a contusion and laceration to his left knee in a collision with a sideline cameraman last week.
"Right now, I cant say its a for sure thing," Rolle said. "In my mind, am I going to play on Sunday? Yeah. But God willing, hopefully everything goes as planned and my knee feels good enough to go out there on Sunday."
Rolle was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and felt soreness in his knee afterward. He stayed inside today doing a pool workout and some cardio and range-of-motion work -- by his count, the first in-season practice he has missed since signing with the Giants in 2010.
Rolle said he had an MRI to check the knee Wednesday, and it did not indicate any further injury than the bruise/laceration. But he must overcome the soreness at the spot of impact with the camera. Source: Newark Star-Ledger
