Tuck and Phillips OUT; Bradshaw and Prince IN
Justin Tuck will not play in the Giants’ most important game of the season.
The defensive end was listed as inactive against the Ravens, even though he was labeled as questionable for the game late in the week. He did not practice at all this week with a shoulder injury.
Tuck was unsure if he would play when he spoke to reporters on Thursday, but certain that whatever role he was in he would be “all in.”
“If I play I’m going to go 100 percent,” Tuck said. “If I don’t. I’m going to go 100 percent as far as rooting on my team.”
Also inactive is Kenny Phillips, who seemed to be on track to play after practicing this week. This is the 9th game of the season Phillips is not suiting up for. Of the seven he appeared in, one was when he initially injured his knee early in Week 4 vs. the Eagles and did not record a stat and another was against the Redskins in which he played a very limited role on third downs and also had zero tackles.
Among the Giants who will play despite being questionable or at least on the injury report: Ahmad Bradshaw, Prince Amukamara, Chris Snee, David Baas.
The other Giants inactives are: Ramses Barden, Tyler Sash, Travis Beckum, Adewale Ojomo and Adrien Robinson.
