Jayron Hosley Injury Update: Rookie Aiming For Season Opener

New York Giants rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley made a big splash in Saturday's preseason game against the New York Jets, intercepting a Mark Sanchez pass and returning it 77 yards for a touchdown. Unfortunately, that was the last snap the third-round pick from Virginia Tech played, as he suffered what has been diagnosed as a turf toe injury.

Hosley has not practiced this week and will not play against the Chicago Bears. He said his "main focus is to try and get ready by Dallas."

That, of course, would be the Sept. 5 season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

Hosley, who had become the player most likely to be the Giants' slot cornerback in their nickel defense, said he is hoping to practice early next week.

"It's been stiff so we're just focused on getting the stiffness out and me being able to get back out there," Hosley said. " It's such a small thing but it could cause so much problems. It's just something that you got to take day by day and do the right thing to get it right."

NOTES: Offensive tackle Will Beatty (back) and linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring) also remained sidelined.
