Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were WR Hakeem Nicks (hamstring), FB Madison Hedgecock (hamstring), OT Will Beatty (foot), DE Justin Tuck (ankle), and DE Mathias Kiwanuka (neck).
“Tuck with an ankle and Nicks had a tight hamstring,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “So we thought it would be smart to not have them go…(Tuck) was limping a little bit after the game (last week). But he went through it – (on Thursday) was fine and it got sore overnight evidently. So he just backed off. I expect him to be okay…Maybe they will work (on Saturday). Hopefully they will work (on Saturday).”
“It’ll be alright,” said Tuck of his ankle. “It’s something we’ve been dealing with for a while now…It hurt worse today than it did yesterday…I’ll play.”
“Nothing serious,” said Nicks of his hamstring. “Probably more fatigue. Just a lot of running, a lot of reps, that’s all…I’ve dealt with this before so I know how to approach it now. I just want to make the right decisions…Oh I’m definitely playing. There’s no question about that. It’s Monday Night Football.”
DE Osi Umenyiora (knee) was limited and PK Lawrence Tynes (ankle) fully practiced.
