DE Justin Tuck Out for the Season: The Giants officially announced yesterday that DE Justin Tuck will miss the remainder of the 2006 NFL season due to his foot injury. Tuck will undergo surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury that will involve inserting screws into Tuck’s foot.

Tuck was originally injured in the October 23rd Monday night game against Dallas. The Giants had hoped that surgery would not be necessary, but a follow-up examination performed earlier this week revealed little progress had been made.

Tuck will most likely be placed on Injured Reserve shortly, joining LB LaVar Arrington (Achilles) and WR Amani Toomer (knee).

New York Giants Sign Offensive Tackle to Practice Squad: The Giants yesterday signed OT Jonathan Dunn to the Practice Squad.

New York Giants Worked Out a Few Players: Not only did the Giants recently work out WR David Boston and WR Peter Warrick, as we reported yesterday, but according to various media reports, the team also worked out WR Marc Boerigter and QB Shaun King.

Injury Update – Is Strahan’s Injury Worse Than the Giants Are Letting On?: The Giants did not practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, but they did issue an updated injury report.

LB Brandon Short (quad), LB Carlos Emmons (groin), and WR Sinorice Moss (quad) are listed as “questionable” for the game against the Jaguars on Monday night.

DE Osi Umenyiora (hip flexor) and CB Sam Madison (hamstring) are “doubtful.”

DE Michael Strahan (foot) and LT Luke Petitgout (leg) are listed as “out.”

Regarding Strahan, Dr Elton Strauss, the Chief of Orthopedic Trauma and Adult Reconstruction at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan told The Daily News, “I would be shocked if he’s back this season. That Lisfranc injury is a bad injury. Phil Simms had the same injury in ’90. It’s a bad sprain because you need the mid-part of your foot to really push off. And for a defensive lineman who’s got to charge the ball every time, I would be shocked if he’s back.”

“You have to get in a stance and push off,” said Strahan. “You’ve got to be able to get on your toes. You’ve got to cut, you’ve got to be able to plant your foot and hold it. (With) bad knees, bad legs, (or) bad feet, there’s really not much you can do when it comes to playing any football out there.”

Quotes: QB Eli Manning on getting TE Jeremy Shockey more involved in the offense: “We tried to do it last week a few different ways. The Bears did a good job of keeping a watch out on him so we have to try to get him some catches. We call plays and we expect to get him the ball but defenses go to a different style of coverage and you have to go through your progressions. It’s just a matter of calling the right plays at the right time…Shockey is a good teammate. He is good in the huddle and on the sidelines. He tells me what he thinks and what he thinks is working and how defenses are playing him. He’s a good teammate and he works hard and we have to figure out ways to get him more involved.”
