Aaron Ross Injury Update: Giants DB Expected To Play Sunday Vs. Packers

The New York Giants are expecting to have Aaron Ross back on Sunday for their playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Ross might have sustained a concussion in last week's game during a collision with teammate Jason Pierre-Paul (via True Blue).

What if Ross is not able to go on Sunday, could Prince Amukamara step in?

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said:

"He has gotten better each week and he did a nice job on special teams when he went out to defend the gunners. Atlanta had two outstanding gunners and those guys were good. He did a good job out there so he has improved in that regard and of course and he got a lot of playing time after Aaron was hurt. He is gaining each week and that is exactly what he needs. I think he did a good job with open field transition yesterday turning his hips and getting himself in position. He is physical, he will hit you so he is coming."

Ross has undergone testing but didn't display concussion-like symptoms. Coughlin said the team is treating the situation as if Ross had sustained a concussion.
