    New York Giants starting outside linebacker and defensive end Olivier Vernon left practice today with an apparent ankle injury. The Vernon reportedly got his foot tangled while working through blocks in practice Sunday afternoon Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey , and was carted off the field. Head coach Pat Shurmur spoke to the media after practice, and didn’t give much in the way of details, simply saying that he is being evaluated. Vernon was set to play a key role in the Giants’ defense as their primary edge rusher in both base and nickel defenses. He had taken to the role of outside linebacker well and had been on a tear throughout training camp and the preseason. That he didn’t seem to be in any real kind of pain is encouraging, but the severity of the injury is unknown as of this writing. Time could be against the Giants if Vernon has anything more than a mild injury. The regular season is a scant two weeks away, and the defense needs Vernon healthy. He has played through injury each of the last two years and it has visibly hampered him. Reserve DE/OLB Romeo Okwara replaced Vernon with the starters when he left the field.Post-game quotebook: What the Giants were saying after Thursday’s loss to Patriots What were New York Giants players saying after Thursday’s 17-12 preseason ending loss to the New England Patriots? Let’s go inside the locker room and find out.Donte Deayon on his two trophiesAs he was packing up to head out of the locker room Deayon was stuffing two footballs Youth Sterling Shepard Jersey , the ones he intercepted on Thursday, into his equipment bag.“Man, it’s lovely,” Deayon said of seeing the footballs in his locker. “They are two Patriot ones, so it feels a little better.”Deayon on if he feels secure about making the roster “No Alec Ogletree Jersey , because honestly last year that’s how I felt going into the fourth game. I felt like I kind of laxed and it didn’t sit well with me. I had a little sick feeling in my stomach. Going into this game, I wanted to lock in, and got out there and give it my all. We’ll see what happens.“I won’t be nervous. At this point, I put it all out on the table, I put my best foot forward. At this point 4Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , what happens, happens.”Giants-Patriots: Was Kyle Lauletta’s night better than the stats indicated?Kyle Lauletta on starting the game“I was very excited. I mean, I have wanted to play more and obviously, I haven’t played a whole lot. Probably the first game was the most that I played, so to say Eli Manning Jersey , ‘Hey, you are going to get the start’ was big for me. I don’t think I was nervous. Any time you get out there, you’re a little bit amped up, but I don’t feel nervous. It’s more you just want to do well and you want to throw the balls so good and sometimes when you miss one, you really have to turn the page and move on. Sometimes that will haunt you and will cause you to make more mistakes. I felt comfortable back there; I just missed a couple [of throws] Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , some by a yard or two, but it is what it is. We’ll move on and get ready for the season.Davis Webb on his preseason“I did the best I could and I think I got better each and every day. I feel confident where I’m at, and I know my teammates do. That’s the most important thing.”
