Giants Vs. Seahawks Friday Injury Report: David Baas Won't Play

New York Giants’ starting center David Baas will not play Sunday due to a lingering neck injury. Defensive end Justin Tuck and running back Brandon Jacobs are also listed as doubtful, Tuck with neck and groin injuries and Jacobs with a knee issue that has flared up this week.

Versatile veteran Kevin Boothe, who has played right tackle, left guard and center during his time with the Giants, will start for Baas.

“I take pride in trying to prepare myself for whatever situation might present itself in a game,” Boothe said. “Being active, things can happen, there can be a variety of injuries or different circumstances that require you to play different positions, so you have to be ready for it all.”

Coach Tom Coughlin is confident Boothe can do the job.

“The thing you don’t lose is the savvy and intelligence and the ability to make the call,” Coughlin said. “He has been a guy that has learned multiple positions since he has been here. He is very sharp and he will direct traffic in there. He will play well and he has always played well when he has been put in that spot. … We like to think that we are on course to stay basically the same.”
