The New York Giants continue to have injury issues at defensive end.
New York ruled defensive end Osi Umenyiora out of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, with head coach Tom Coughlin saying "evidently he is not going to make it this week." Defensive end Justin Tuck said he could be a game-time decision.
Coughlin hopes Tuck will practice on Friday. The end has been playing with an injured toe, and said this week the injury was tougher than he initially let on.
Umenyiora rode the stationary bike during Thursday's practice, but will not play Sunday for the third straight week. The 30-year old Umenyiora, who has recorded seven sacks this season, injured his ankle in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints.
