Justin Tuck made it clear this week that he wants to play for the New York Giants against the Washington Redskins, injured toe and other assorted body parts not withstanding. Tuck has now officially been listed as 'questionable' for Sunday.

"We're trying everything and nothing has really helped so far. We'll see on Sunday," Tuck said on Thursday, when he did talk to reporters. "I've been doing everything possible to get some relief, strengthen it. Some things have had positive effects. Some things have had negative effects. Some things have no effect."
Five players have been ruled out by the Giants for this week. Center David Baas (neck), tight end Travis Beckum (chest), linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle), safety Derrick Martin (back) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee).
Safety Kenny Phillips (knee), linebacker Spencer Paysinger (hamstring) and running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) are probable for Sunday.
