Last week S Antrel Rolle sprained his ankle and was assigned a walking boot. He shed it the next day proclaiming that “boots are for wimps.”
Today he was asked if his “boot theory” pertained to teammate Victor Cruz:
“I want him to be in that boot. We need to make sure we take care of Victor. I think we all know what he means to this team so if he has to walk around in a boot for a month, so be it. Maybe I’ll put a boot on with him to just show him that I’m with him. “
Rolle was asked if he knew when he was going to be cleared to practice…
“I’m going to return to the practice field whenever I’m ready. Whenever I can go out there and feel like I’m not favoring it. Right now we’re ahead of schedule and things are going good.”
He’s got time before the Giants will be requiring his services. Eighteen days to be exact. That’s when the Giants are due to open the regular season in Dallas.
“No, I’m going to let it take its course,” said Rolle when asked if he had the Dallas game circled on his calendar. “I’m going to let it come to me, but once it comes to me, I’m sure I’ll be ready.”
