New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was limited in practice on Wednesday, but plans to play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said he will play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles despite being limited in practice on Wednesday with a shoulder injury. Tuck did not play in Week 16 against the Ravens because of his shoulder.
Hakeem Nicks, who has been battling injuries all season, did not practice on Wednesday due to a knee injury. Nicks suited up against the Ravens, but did not have any receptions. Also not practicing on Wednesday were guard Chris Snee (hip), center David Baas (hip/shoulder), defensive tackle Chris Canty (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee), and tight end Travis Beckum (knee). Bradshaw made his return to the lineup against the Ravens after missing one game, but was limited to only nine carries. Beckum has already been ruled out for the Eagles game.
In addition to Tuck, safety Kenny Phillips was limited with a knee injury. Phillips has not played in the Giants last three games.
