A host of New York Giants missed Wednesday's practice in preparation for Sunday's tilt with the Washington Redskins, including defensive lineman Justin Tuck.
Tuck played through the pain of an injured right toe against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, but required an MRI following the game. Before receiving the results of his MRI, Tuck said he expected to play against Washington. Coach Tom Coughlin would not go into detail about the MRI results, but hinted that perhaps the results were relatively positive.
"I can't give you all of the medical terms, but it's not going to be anything to... It's discomfort. It's sore. It's an issue, but hopefully it's going to be able to get under control," Coughlin said during his press conference on Wednesday.
Center David Baas (neck), tight end Travis Beckum (chest), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle), safety Derrick Martin (back) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee) also missed practice.
Safety Kenny Phillips returned to practice for the first time since spraining his MCL against the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago.
