Injury Update – Many to Miss Steelers Game: Not practicing on Thursday were DE Justin Tuck (back), OL Justin Pugh (concussion), OL James Brewer (concussion), RB Ryan Torain (concussion), S Cooper Taylor (hamstring), FB Henry Hynoski (PUP – knee), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (PUP – back), and DT Markus Kuhn (PUP – knee). Tuck might play against the Steelers on Saturday night, but the others will not.
When asked about Tuck, Head Coach Tom Coughlin responded, “I don’t know. Today was not what we wanted. He’s not quite as nifty and nimble as we had hoped. We’ll have to see. I actually thought he would work today.”
“It’s just a little tightness,” said Tuck. “I don’t think this is something that’s gonna be much more of an issue after this week…I’ve played in worse pain, I can tell you that. (We) just want to be smart and make sure it is nothing that will linger, that’s all.”
OG Chris Snee (hip) and CB Terrell Thomas (knee/hamstring) practiced on a limited basis. Coughlin said they will not play against the Steelers.
