Antrel Rolle injury: Giants' safety passes concussion tests

Stephen Dunn

Giants' safety Antel Rolle has passed the necessary concussion test and was at practice on Thursday.

Giants' safety Antrel Rolle has passed concussion tests following an injury suffered during New York's win over the Dallas Cowboys, and was practicing with the team on Thursday. Rolle left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter after hitting his head on the turf.

The injury wasn't new for Rolle, and he knew how he was feeling, as he told reporters after practice:

Q: Were you concerned after the game with what these tests might show?

A: No. I wasn’t really concerned. I knew what I was feeling at the moment. I just got dinged up a little bit, but fully aware of what was going on, of where I was and everything like that. I’m back out here.

The Giants will need Rolle in the lineup in Week 9 as they face the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are seventh in the NFL in passing yards per game, and have 14 touchdown passes to just three interceptions.

New York will be looking for their fifth-straight win this week. The Giants have taken control of the NFC East at 6-2. The Philadelphia Eagles and Cowboys are tied for second back at 3-4. The Steelers will be a motivated group on Sunday, as they have pulled within one game of the first-place Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North.
