Ross Likely Out For Sunday



    Giants cornerback and former University of Texas standout Aaron Ross will likely miss Sunday night's game between New York and Dallas with a hamstring injury, reports the New York Daily News.

    Ross hasn't attempted to practice since August 25th, when he left the field complaining of pain near the back of the knee, as well as in the middle of the muscle. It is an injury which Ross called "frustrating."

    "I'm feeling a difference, but it's still not completely healed yet," Ross said in the Daily News. "I don't know how much longer I have for it to be completely healed. I'm still getting treatment and trying to get it better."

    Former Cowboy Chris Canty suffered a hamstring tear in camp, and used a platelet-rich plasma injection at the site of the injury to speed up his return. Ross, after "begging" for the same procedure, got it, and though it helped, he said on Monday that he wouldn't practice this week and would likely be out on Sunday.

    Kevin Dockery, who also missed the Giants' opening win over the Redskins, is likely to make his return in Dallas.

    Also on the injury front for New York:

    *Hakeem Nicks suffered a sprained left foot in the win and although the Giants are confident he'll have a speedy recovery, he will miss at least two weeks.

    *Running back Danny Ware suffered a dislocated elbow, and will also be inactive for Sunday's game. Head coach Tom Coughlin said in the Daily Newsthat he'll also sit out for two weeks before being listed as day to day. Coughlin added that the Giants would consider adding another running back in his absence.
