PAIN TRAIN

Injuries are a part of football, but these players have been hit particularly hard.

Despite developing a blood clot in his left leg a little more than a week ago, there is a chance New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers might play this season.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Tuesday that the 12-year-veteran got a second opinion about his injury, and the team has ''a ray of hope'' that Rogers will be able to get back on the field.

Rogers reported swelling in his leg two days after the Giants played their preseason opener against Jacksonville on Aug. 12. Tests revealed a blood clot, and Coughlin said Rogers wouldn't play this season because he would have to take blood-thinning medication.

Coughlin said Rogers is still taking medication, but the second doctor thought he could play.

''I'm not going to be able to give you all the medical stuff. He is on his medication, there's a chance that he could come back and play, is what we've been told,'' Coughlin said. ''We're just going to hang in there as long as we can. See if they can determine where he is and how fast he would be able to play and all that stuff.''
