As the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game nears, the New York Giants have been relatively lucky on the injury front. Their major loss came earlier this offseason when linebacker Jon Beason fractured his foot, while rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has also missed some time with a hamstring injury. Beyond that, they've stayed relatively healthy … at least until this past Sunday.
"Minor hamstring strain a couple of days ago," Coughlin said.
Coughlin gave no indication how long the team expects Grimble to be out, but also announced that he wasn't the only player to sustain a new injury. In addition to Grimble, wide receiver and return specialist, Trindon Holliday, also suffered an apparent leg/knee injury on Sunday.
"Yes, he did something catching a punt," Coughlin said. "Hopefully, it’s not much."
Like Grimble, Coughlin offered no timetable on a return, but Holliday was seen on Sunday with a large ice wrap around his knee/leg.
With increased focus on preventing hamstring injuries and frustration already boiling over with Odell Beckham Jr., Coughlin can be none too pleased with these latest injuries.
