Aaron Ross has been hobbled by a nagging hamstring injury, has not appeared in a regular season game and is practicing on a limited basis.
The question posed to me was...if he cant' play, why wasn't he placed on the PUP list? It doesn't appear he had any chance of playing before Week 6, which is the week a team must make a decision on a PUP player. Did they keep him around to rehab him? They're wasting a roster spot in the interim...
Here's the answer.....
Ross would have to have been placed on the PUP on the outset of training camp in order to be on that list right now. He injured the hamstring in camp and the Giants could not place him on any list except IR, which at the current moment, would not be wise since his injury is not deemed as season-ending.
WR Domenik Hixon, DT Chris Canty (calf) and RB Danny Ware (elbow) will miss this week's game vs Kansas City. RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) did not practice all week. His foot was in a protective boot. The coaches are confident he will play, though.
The other banged-up players all practiced this week: DE Justin Tuck (shoulder), LB Clint Sintim (groin), OL Adam Koets (ankle) and Kareem McKenzie (knee), CB Kevin Dockery (hamstring), WR Hakeem Nicks (foot), LB Chase Blackburn (ankle) and OL Rich Seubert (shoulder). Which of these will not dress on Sunday is still unknown.
