Groin setback makes Tuck doubtful

If it’s not one thing, it’s the other.

Justin Tuck suffered a setback in practice yesterday, Tom Coughlin said, and the injury caused him to miss today’s practice and be listed as doubtful for the game on Sunday. But it’s not the neck that is slowing Tuck down.

“The groin is the irritating thing now,” Coughlin said.

The neck is still an issue, but it appears the combination of the two will force Tuck to miss a second straight game. He was not available for comment in the locker room after practice today.

As for the other injured players, Brandon Jacobs is listed as doubtful along with Tuck. Coughlin had hopes that he could play earlier in the week, but Jacobs’ knee never made the kind of progress it needed to make to get him back on the field. He did not practice today. “Someone else is going to have to step up and do the job,” Coughlin said.

And David Baas, who had a burner in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, will not play against the Seahawks. He and Prince Amukamara (foot) have been ruled out.

Others on the injury report – Michael Boley (knee), Rocky Bernard (ribs) and Osi Umenyiora (knee) – are listed as probable for the game.
