Status of Giants’ Jacobs, Ross to be determined

Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn’t provide much of an update on two injured starters, CB Aaron Ross and RB Brandon Jacobs, on Monday, leaving their status to be determined later in the week. Coughlin did confirm that Ross suffered a sprained ankle during Sunday’s game against the Eagles, saying he was “pretty optimistic” about the injury.

Coughlin was slightly more cryptic about the left knee injury that sidelined Jacobs during the third quarter. Coughlin seemed to bristle at a question suggesting that Jacobs said he could have returned to the game, and the coach wouldn’t say whether the Giants’ leading rusher underwent an MRI exam on Monday. Jacobs hurt his left knee during a Nov. 16 game against the Ravens and sat out the following game against the Cardinals.

“Jacobs is sore,” Coughlin said when asked about the knee. “He is sore. This is an on-going kind of thing. And hopefully we can get that under control and he will be ready to go. He is sore today.”
