At the beginning of the week, Justin Tuck said he had a “50-50” chance to play against the Rams on Monday night. Today Tom Coughlin officially concurred.

The Giants listed Tuck (neck) and WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) as questionable on their final injury report of the week, meaning that there is a 50-percent chance they will not play in the upcoming game. Realistically, though, their chances seem to be much better than that.

It's not exactly a two-headed coin the Giants will be tossing, but it's pretty close.

Both practiced again today – although they were limited – and have said they expect to be available on Monday.

The Giants did rule out three of their players for the game: CB Prince Amukamara (foot) and DE Osi Umenyiora (knee) are both recovering from surgery and TE Travis Beckum (hamstring) did not practice all week and will not play Monday.
