The good news for New York Giants rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley is that his foot issue is not of the worst case variety. The bad news is that he may still miss a little time with what head coach Tom Coughlin called a "turf toe kind of issue." Additional tests are forthcoming.
"Hopefully nothing will turn up [on the tests]," Coughlin said. "It's going to be very sore."
Coughlin noted that Hosley was only on the field for seven plays Saturday night, and would not pinpoint the moment in which the injury occurred. However, it is widely speculated that the rookie injured himself when dragging his feet along the ground after returning an interception for a touchdown (see video above).
No timetable has been offered for Hosley's return, but turf toe can be a lingering injury that keeps athletes out of commission for up to five weeks. It's safe to assume that he will not play on Friday night against the Chicago Bears, and may be held out for the remainder of the preseason.
As a precaution, Hosley was immediately put in a walking boot following the game – a 26-3 victory over the New York Jets.
And, hey … if Hosley just needs a little ice, all he has to do is ask Jason Pierre-Paul to drop him in the ice tub.
