Antrel Rolle Injury: Giants Safety Has Knee Laceration

Giants safety Antrel Rolle sustained a knee laceration in the fourth quarter of New York's Thursday night blowout of the Panthers. The injury occurred on a pass intended for Carolina tight end Greg Olsen that sailed outside the boundary. Rolle was covering Olsen in the corner of the end zone when his momentum sent him crashing into a camera man on the sideline. He tried to jump over the bystander, but his left knee banged directly into the camera and he came down awkwardly. In addition to the laceration, he was also going to get x-rays on the knee.

The Giants secondary has suffered a slew of injuries, with both Rolle and Corey Webster getting banged up against the Panthers. Webster sustained a hand injury in the first half, but returned to the game after going to the locker room for X-rays. Prince Amukamara was making his first start of the season on Thursday after sitting out hobbled with a high ankle sprain.

Rolle was replaced by Stevie Brown, who promptly picked off Cam Newton on the goalline and took if back to the 43-yard line.
