December 31, 2009 New York Giants Injury Report: Head Coach Tom Coughlin confirmed that the MRI taken on DT Chris Canty’s knee showed an MCL injury and not a more serious ACL injury. “Thank goodness,” said Coughlin. But Canty will not play on Sunday against the Vikings; his season is over.

Other than the players put on Injured Reserve and Canty, not practicing yesterday were DE Justin Tuck (knee), CB Corey Webster (knee), HB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankles/foot), and RT Kareem McKenzie (knee).

“(Tuck) came in this morning and his knee was sore and swollen,” said Coughlin. “So we’ll try to help him get to the game.” Tuck said he will play.

WR Hakeem Nicks (hamstring), WR Mario Manningham (shoulder), LG Rich Seubert (knee), and DT Fred Robbins (lower leg) were limited in practice.

QB Eli Manning (foot) practiced fully.

Notes and Quotes: WR Ramses Barden on his rookie season: “The biggest jump to me is still off the field. It’s the professionalism of the job, it’s the commitment, and it’s the time in the meeting room. On the field stuff is still football, there are some things that are different team-wise that the guys on the field are going to a little bigger, a little bit stronger but the main thing is the off the field environment.”

This weekend P Jeff Feagles will become just the second player in NFL history to play in four different decades.
