New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle appeared for his weekly interview with WFAN's Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Monday, saying his comments following Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins were not directed at any of his teammates in particular.
"First of all, my comments weren't directed to anyone in particular. And I know the media - as always - are trying to pinpoint one of our guys, which is Justin Tuck," Rolle told Benigno and Roberts. "At the end of the day, legitimate injuries are legitimate injuries. I'm not saying be Superman. But I'm just saying if you can give us a little bit more, give us a little bit more."
After the Giants lost 23-10 to Washington, Rolle said everyone on the Giants needs to give more and suggested that some players with injuries should practice through pain.
"It starts in practice, man. This s- starts in practice," Rolle said after the 23-10 loss. "And you know what? We need to have everyone on the field. If you're injured, so be it, you're injured. We understand that. But nicks and bruises? Everyone needs to be on the field because we're not getting better like this."
