"I'm just trying to do everything day to day to give me the best opportunity to go out there and help the football team win," Tuck said Thursday. "Hopefully we'll find out something tomorrow or the next day, but I don't think the decision will be made until Sunday."
Tuck has battled neck, groin, ankle and toe injuries this season. His absence would leave the Giants with Jason Pierre-Paul, Dave Tollefson and Justin Trattou at defensive end, since Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee) "not going to make it this week," according to coach Tom Coughlin.
Here is Thursday's complete injury report.
Did not practice: Center David Baas (neck), tight end Travis Beckum (chest), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle), safety Derrick Martin (back), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee), Tuck (toe).
Limited: Spencer Paysinger (hamstring), Kenny Phillips (knee).
