Antrel Rolle injury: Giants' safety wants to play

Stephen Dunn

Antrel Rolle wants to play this week despite suffering a possible concussion Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Antrel Rolle suffered a head injury in Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, but there's a chance the New York Giants safety might be able to play Sunday - and he wants to.

Rolle hit his head into the turf and left the game in the fourth quarter, replaced by Tyler Sash. The 29-year-old reportedly experienced dizziness after coming off the field, but was aware of his surroundings. When asked about his status for Sunday, he said that he would opt to play if given the opportunity.

"If it’s up to me, I’m definitely gonna be out there come Sunday," Rolle told WFAN’s Richard Neer on Tuesday.

Rolle went through the league's mandatory protocol for head injuries, although it isn't clear whether or not he suffered a concussion. The tests reportedly went well for Rolle. The eighth year veteran out of the University of Miami has started every game this season, recording 40 tackles and two interceptions. On the other side, the Giants have turned to Stevie Brown, who has been playing since an injury to Kenny Phillips suffered in Week 4 against the Eagles.
