Coughlin Wants NFL To Move Cameras Back

Sep 22, 2012 1:32 PM EST

Antrel Rolle hurt his knee in Week 3 when trying to avoid a cameraman in the corner of the end zone but banged his knee on a camera while trying to hurdle him.

Tom Coughlin said he crossed paths with Ray Anderson, NFL's vice president for game operations, in Carolina after the Rolle injury. 

"I kind of looked at Ray Anderson, and I said, 'We're so concerned about player safety, can't we do something about this?'" Coughlin said. "Can't we get people away from the sideline enough for a guy going as fast as he was going, flying through the air, that he doesn't put his knee into a camera? 

"I think that's something that we can do something about," Coughlin continued. "We ought to be able to clear the playing field so a guy can play. ... I don't think he's going to miss any time. He's not like that anyway. He'll play with whatever, but it didn't have to happen."
