Rolle feels Ross' pain

Antrel Rolle kind of feels Aaron Ross’ pain.

The Giants safety said he tore his plantar fascia completely last season when playing against the Giants while with the Cardinals. He continued to play with the tear last year.

Ross has plantar fasciitis in his right heel and is currently wearing a cast on it for 10 days to hopefully help the healing process. The cornerback will likely miss the remainder of the preseason.

“Actually, his is a little bit different than mine,” Rolle said. “He has plantar fasciitis, which is a partial tear. I tore my plantar fascia completely. To tear it completely is actually better than to tear it partially. Once you tear it completely, it kind of takes care of itself and it doesn’t matter. Just depends on how much pain you can play on.”

Rolle said he did not undergo surgery for his injury last season but he said his foot still feels stiff in the morning when he wakes up. He said he is fine once it loosens up.

Quarterback Eli Manning played with plantar fasciitis last season but dealing with it as a quarterback is different than playing on it as a cornerback with all the cutting, stopping and running.

“It’s going to be something that he’s going to have to deal with for a long time,” Rolle said.
