Pro Bowl center Shaun O’Hara out again with ankle
The examination revealed no new injury to the ankle. The swelling, however, is the result of a chronic condition in the joint.
The Giants also disclosed on Tuesday that receiver Hakeem Nicks, their first-round draft choice last season, hyperextended his right knee at the end of practice. He will undergo an MRI and be examined on Wednesday.
The Giants do not expect to update his status until Thursday.
O'Hara took part in conditioning drills Sunday morning and a light workout that afternoon. He did not appear to hurt the ankle at any time.
Swelling developed in the ankle late Sunday and he has missed four practices over the past two days at the University at Albany.
“I definitely think there is some uncertainty,” said guard Chris Snee, who also has played in the last two Pro Bowls. “We can’t worry about that. Shaun is going to do whatever he can to get back on the field. Right now, we will go with who we have out there and just really work on that continuity.”
The former Rutgers player who has been selected to the Pro Bowl the past two years has started every regular season game since 2007. He only game he missed in the past three seasons was the NFC Wild Card game in 2007 in New York’s run to a Super Bowl title.
“Everyone wants to play,” Koets said between practices on Tuesday. “It is an opportunity for me and I just have to make the most of it.”
Drafted as a tackle out of Oregon State in sixth round in 2007, Koets has never started an NFL game. He appears to have put on muscle in the offseason and seemingly has not made the blatant errors that had coaches all over him earlier in his career.
“I kind of realized I have been here three years and it’s time for me to step up and play,” said Koets, who can play any position on the line. “It’s an opportunity for me I have to show what I can do.”
