The list of big-name Giants who seem destined to remain on the injury list for Sunday's game against the Bills was unchanged during the portion of Friday's practice the media was allowed to view. Defensive end Justin Tuck (groin/neck) was in uniform but remained on the sideline during stretching, and running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) and guard Chris Snee (concusison) were no-shows for practice.

Fullback Henry Hynoski (neck) was in uniform but did not stretch or participate in drills and likely will be replaced by tight end Bear Pascoe in two-back sets. Long snapper Zak DeOssie (concussion) was working alone with placekicker Lawrence Tynes and punter Steve Wetherford, which was a hopeful sign, and center David Baas (neck), pictured above, and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee) both practiced.

The availability of Baas allowed Kevin Boothe to slip into Snee's spot at right guard, so, the offensive line should be in relatively good shape for the Bills. The official injury update will be issued shortly after practice ends.
