Antrel Rolle Not hurt in fatal New York nightclub shooting

Almost exactly three years since Plaxico Burress' fateful mishap on Manhattan's social scene, several other Giants had a scary scrape there early Tuesday morning.

But The New York Times reports that WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, DE Chris Canty and DBs Antrel Rolle and Aaron Ross are safe and sound after a man was fatally shot at the Juliet Supper Club.

Two other people were wounded, one seriously, by a lone gunman.

Cruz, who was there celebrating his 25th birthday, told the Associated Press that he hit the deck when the shooting started.

"I was just sitting there and you could hear it on the other side, the shots go off," he said. "The rest was just me on the ground and trying to get out of there."

Per its sources, The Times also says Chiefs T Branden Albert, Eagles S Jarrad Page and several NBA players were in attendance. None had any connection to the incident nor were nearby when it occurred.

Page was released by the Eagles on Wednesday, but the team says the nightclub incident is not the reason he was cut, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

The Giants players, believed to be celebrating Cruz's birthday, left together shortly after the shooting. All of them are practicing today.
