More Injuries For Giants: Boss Has Concussion, Beatty A Broken Foot

The injuries just keep coming for the New York Giants. Coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that tight Kevin Boss has a concussion, and that tackle Will Beatty has a broken bone in his foot that will require surgery. Linebacker Chase Blackburn has a sprained MCL, and the timetable for his return is uncertain.

Coughlin was not happy at all that there was no penalty called on the Carolina Panthers on the play where Boss suffered the concussion. He was hit in the head while falling after leaping to catch a high throw across the middle from Eli Manning.

"If people are following the rules, the kid doesn't get touched," Coughlin said. "That was as blatant and obvious as anything you see. No call, no nothing. We lose a player a few plays into the game."

Beatty has a fracture of the fifth metatarsal. No word yet on how long he will be out.

The only good injury news Monday for the Giants is that cornerback Aaron Ross, who missed Sunday's game with plantar fasciitis, is expected to practice this week.
