Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here is your Tuesday morning notebook.

We have to start with head coach Tom Coughlin and his final words on the whole 'Tub-Gate' fiasco.

"It was wrong for Steve [Weatherford] to do that [post the video] because there’s trust in the locker room. People have to be able to rely on each other. You don’t think for one minute that would have happened if they thought this was going to be published. I did see the tape and it’s inappropriate on a couple of levels. First, the language was inappropriate, no doubt about that. Anytime you have a player that could be injured, that’s not a good move and I would be concerned about that as well. Those are the things," Coughlin said.

Coughlin did say there will be no more dunking incidents.

"I told the players that because of the idea of that nature of what took place and the potential for injury, we can’t have that anymore," he said

Hakeem Nicks Update

Coughlin said Nicks looked "pretty good" in his first practice since breaking his foot. The coach said "we'll see" when asked if Nicks would play in either of the two remaining preseason games.

"We’re going to go slow to make sure that there’s never a setback. He’s very anxious to do more, but we’ll go slow," Coughlin said.

Other Injury News

- Coughlin said left tackle Will Beatty (back) is "still struggling."

- Cornerback Jayron Hosley (turf toe) was seen by reporters in a walking boot, and Coughlin said the Giants are trying to keep him off his feet.

- Defensive tackle Marvin Austin "seems to be getting better," said Coughlin, although he does not know when Austin will be able to return to practice. Austin told reporters he felt good, but that he "couldn't tell you exactly" when he would return.
