Brandon Jacobs left the Giants’ 30-10 win over the Ravens on Sunday with a sore right knee during the second half and didn’t return to the game. What remains to be seen is how serious the injury is.
Both Jacobs and coach Tom Coughlin categorized the injury as “sore,” and Jacobs said he could have returned to the game if necessary. There was little need, however, as Ahmad Bradshaw and Derrick Ward combined for 137 yards on 20 rushes as the Giants protected a large lead.
“I just landed on it,” said Jacobs, who didn’t carry the ball after the Giants’ first drive of the third quarter. “It wasn’t anything bad but it made no sense to go back out there and run on it. I could have if I had to but we have two other guys and they went out and did their thing.”
Jacobs finished the day 73 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. Coughlin was vague when asked what his level of concern was regarding the injury.
“I will see,” replied Coughlin. “I don’t know what to say about that. I know that he is sore.”
