Justin Tuck will not play Sunday for the New York Giants when they face the Baltimore Ravens. Tuck, the Giants' defensive end and captain, headlines the team's list of inactives. Also on the list is Kenny Phillips, who has been in and out of the lineup the past few weeks with a knee injury.
The complete list:
Tuck did not practice this week due to a shoulder injury. Phillips practiced this week, so his being inactive is a surprise.
Running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who missed last week with a knee injury, will play today.
Tuck being down means Osi Umenyiora and Mathias Kiwanuka will likely play increased snaps. Adrian Tracy may also factor into the defensive end rotation. Without Phillips, rookie Will Hill is likely to continue as the team's third safety. The Giants also appear to have kept an extra running back active in the event Bradshaw can't make it through.
