The veteran safety was injured while attempting to defend a David Carr pass intended for tight end Bear Pascoe, according to the New York Post. Rolle and Pascoe crashed to the turf after becoming entangled while jumping for the ball. Rolle, in obvious pain, was tended to by trainers before being carted off the field.
Rolle went for an MRI on the injured ankle after practice. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who recently spoke to someone close to the player, Rolle suffered an ankle sprain. A timetable for his return has not yet been set.
"I would much rather have (Rolle)," Coughlin said, via Newsday. "Hopefully it's an ankle and he's coming right back."
It looks as if Coughlin got his wish.
