NY Giants Center Shaun O'Hara In NYC For Tests On Ankle

The P

Recommended Posts



ALBANY, N.Y. -- The New York Giants announced that center Shaun O'Hara traveled to New York to have his left ankle examined by team physicians at the Hospital for Special Surgery.


O'Hara noticed swelling in his ankle following the first practice of camp on Sunday night. He hasn't practiced since and left the team Tuesday to head to Manhattan for further testing.


"Well, I think they're going to look at it, do all the tests, and find out what it is," head coach Tom Coughlin said after the morning practice prior to the team announcing O'Hara's trip to Manhattan. "It's always a concern."


Coughlin said on Monday that O'Hara's ankle had been something the center was dealing with during the summer.


"It was kind of a surprise to me," O'Hara said on Monday. "I felt good running [sunday morning during conditioning tests], and the next thing you know there was some fluid and some swelling. We are taking it easy right now and trying to get some of it out. We want to make sure that we are being smart about it, and we'll take it from there."

Exams Reveal No Serious Issues For Shaun O'Hara's Ankle




ALBANY, N.Y. – I was late getting back from the practice field Tuesday afternoon, so the report will be a little delayed.


In the meantime, I can tell you the examinations and MRI taken of Giants center Shaun O’Hara’s injured left ankle Tuesday afternoon revealed no serious issues, according to someone informed of the results of O’Hara’s visit to the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.


The person, who requested anonymity because the team hasn’t released any information on the tests or exams, said O’Hara has suffered no damage to any bones, the joint or to his Achilles tendon.


O’Hara will likely head back – or perhaps already is on his way back – here to UAlbany to rejoin his teammates. It’s unclear if there has been a date set for his expected return to practice.
