OBJ Injury Watch

Recommended Posts

Initial X-rays on the ankle came back negative so it appears we dodged a major bullet. More tests are coming tomorrow and we will see if OBJ will miss some games in the regular season

Is the consensus among Giants fans that this was an illegal hit? a dirty hit? both? neither?

Not a Giants fan, but I could see how you'd be unhappy with the hit, regardless of what damage was done. People talk about how that's lose/lose for the DB, but I'm almost positive there was another way to go for that "tackle" without immediately dipping all the way and gunning for the lower leg.

Things happen so quickly on the football field, you can't really blame the defender.  I certainly don't think he had malicious intent.

Luckily for OBJ and the Giants his cleat slipped out.  If it were firmly planted, he'd be on IR today.

I mean, ideally I'd like the DB to hit him a little higher on his thigh, but that's such a small window that you can expect them to hit. Especially when you're defending guys like OBJ who are so fast and if you give them an inch they will make you pay. You just have to try to put a body on them as soon as possible, and sometimes that doesn't allow you to really aim for a super specific spot. Obviously I don't want to see the Giants best player taken out by a hit, but there's no way this could be called dirty, IMO.

Not a shocker or anything. It's too early for anything definitive. It's a race against the clock
