Coughlin getting testy about injuries

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn't shed much light on cornerback Aaron Ross' hamstring injury during his news conference earlier today, but it's obvious he's tired of answering questions.

"He is limping. What can I tell you?" Coughlin told reporters Wednesday. "What do you want me to tell you? He's got a hamstring."

Coughlin did say that Ross' hamstring "was a little worse than it was," which isn't good news. At this point, it sounds like there's a decent chance Ross and defensive tackle Chris Canty won't be ready for the season opener against the Redskins. Coughlin has asked the media to stop praising his team for its superior depth, so I'm going to cooperate with at this point. But at the end of his news conference, Coughlin did put a positive spin on Ross being out.

"We have had two or three corners with a ton of work. You talk about a kid like Bruce Johnson. The work he has gotten in preseason, it is amazing, because we did have both Corey (Webster) and Aaron (Ross) out for a while early on. Then, we got Corey back, then we lost Aaron again, and Stoney Woodson with the ankle, he has tried to go but he hasn’t been able to. With one practice a day, those guys are getting a lot of work, they should really benefit by this."
