Michael Coe says hamstring 'feeling pretty good'

New York Giants cornerback Michael Coe gave an encouraging report on his hamstring injury one day after he left the team's season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys and didn't return.

"I'm feeling pretty good," Coe said Thursday. "I'll see really after these next couple of days how it is, but I actually feel real good and I'm still able to move around, so that's encouraging for me."

Coe's absence in Wednesday night's second half forced backup Justin Tryon into the game, and he was beaten on some key completions in the Cowboys' 24-17 win. The Giants already are dealing with the loss of cornerback Terrell Thomas to a knee injury for the second straight year.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin sounded a bit annoyed when discussing Coe's injury Thursday.

"Anytime you have a corner, he's had this issue before, now it's on the other side. I don't understand it. I didn't know there was a hamstring till about five years ago," Coughlin said. "That's all we hear, you have to be able to take the field and play this game. Somehow, some way, people stay out there. We're in a position where we need all the help we can get back there."

The Giants' other injured cornerback, Prince Amukamara, said on Thursday that he hasn't yet run his sprained ankle, but he's still targeting a Week 2 return.

"That's my target," he said. "I don't know if that's the trainers' thoughts."
