"O'Hara will be a couple of more days," Coughlin said. "He's made really good progress. They feel good about where he is right now. I think the swelling has gone down in his leg, his temperature is gone. The whole symptom again is right back to the little small circle that they drew, so he's going to be in there a day, or a couple of more days."
Coughlin praised Wayne Lucier, who stepped into the starting lineup in O'Hara's place.
"He did a good job," Coughlin said. "He's in there fighting and battling with a couple of days notice and he's a guy that I've been very impressed with, his overall attitude and approach since way last spring. He jumps in there as soon as he sees any kind of an issue anywhere along the line, he's ready to go. He's smart, he studies, he works. He has a lot of pride in himself and what he does and he did an admirable job. I think between himself and Whittle they got a lot of things worked out and the communication did not suffer at all with Wayne in there."
*Coughlin said linebacker Barrett Green was undergoing an MRI, so he did not know the extent of the knee and ankle injuries the linebacker suffered early in Sunday's game.
"I'm very concerned, because anytime you don't know what it is…there is swelling, so there is a level of concern," Coughlin said.
