Giants Injury Update: Justin Tuck Says He'll Play Against Miami

After missing the past two games with groin and neck injuries, New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was adamant Monday that the streak would stop there. Following the Giants' 27-24 win against Buffalo on Sunday, Tuck promised reporters he would play in New York's Week 8 home game against Miami.

"Look into my eyes," Tuck said. "I'm playing against Miami."

With the Giants officially taking a break for their bye week on Thursday, the team's other injured players will also get a chance to rest up before the Dolphins game. The Giants might be able to get cornerback Prince Amukamara (foot), wide receiver Ramses Barden and offensive lineman Adam Koets onto the field for the first time this season. Barden and Koets are both on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, Barden with an ankle issue and Koets with a knee injury.

"Those decisions are made on a daily basis by all of us," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said. "We'll just continue to monitor their progress in the next week and see where it is. I don't know exactly when those individuals will be cleared. Hopefully we'll be in a position where they're ready to go."
