New York Giants rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley is all set to go for Wednesday’s season opener against the Cowboys.
“Jayron Hosley (turf toe) was a full participant at practice today and will also be in uniform come Sunday,” wrote Jorge Castillo of the Newark Star-Ledger.
“No problems, no problems at all,” the rookie cornerback said. “Everything’s good. No setbacks, full steam ahead from here. I’m feeling good.”
“Hosley confirmed he’ll be the Giants’ nickel cornerback and expects plenty of snaps there. The last time he was at nickel back was also his last play of the preseason – a 77-yard interception return for a touchdown,” Castillo wrote.
As a rookie, Hosley is already an important piece to the Giants secondary with him coming in and being their nickel corner. They need him to ready to go and it looks like he will be.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks practiced on Saturday despite the fact that he’s dealing with soreness in his foot. Sunday was another story Nicks.
According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, Nicks was held out of Sunday’s practice due to soreness in his foot.
“A day after stating he was feeling fine and having no problems on the field, Hakeem Nicks on Sunday did not participate in practice just four days before the Giants face the Cowboys in the season opener,” wrote Schwartz.
I believe Nicks will end up playing in Wednesday’s season opener.

New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara will likely miss next week’s season opener. He believes he’ll have a better shot of playing in week two.
“I’m thinking Week 2 is more promising, but I want Week 1 to be promising as well,” Amukamara said of his high ankle sprain per Tom Rock of Newsday. “They haven’t told me yes, they haven’t told me no.”
The Giants have a lot of injuries at the cornerback position, but I believe Michael Coe will doe fine starting in Amukamara’s place.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews in Florida to get a second opinion on his knee. The Giants are holding out hope that he didn’t suffer a torn ACL.
“Giants CB Terrell Thomas is scheduled to meet Tuesday in Pensacola, Florida with Dr. James Andrews. But doctors who have examined Thomas so far do not believe he has a torn ACL and they are optimistic he will play again this season,” reported Schefter.
If Thomas didn’t re-tear his ACL, it will be interesting to found out what it wrong with his knee.
