Antrel Rolle plans on testing his twisted ankle this Thursday against the Patriots. In light of the season-ending injury to safety partner Stevie Brown, Rolle is anxious to resume running the Giants’ defensive backfield.
“I told them today I want to go out there and test it and see what I can do,” Rolle said. “I’ll be smart about it, I’ll make sure I relay back to them and let them know how it’s feeling, if it’s still sore, if it’s good, if I can keep going or if I need to shut it down. We’re all on the same page as far as the training staff and coaches.”
Asked if he felt he was gambling with his health by coming back too early, Rolle intimated the ultimate decision was not in his hands:
“Whatever coach Coughlin tells me to do is going to get done. That’s the way I’ve always approached the game. You can’t go into the game worried about injuries. Whatever he tells me to do is going to be done.”
