Description: New York defensive end Justin Tuck sat out Friday's practice because of a shoulder injury.
Insight: He's questionable for Sunday's tilt against Baltimore. Adrian Tracy would probably get the start at left end for the Giants if Tuck is unavailable.

Description: ESPN's Suzy Kolber reports Giants LE Justin Tuck (neck) will "likely" suit up for Monday Night Football against the Rams.
Insight: Tuck has been limited in his practices but he said he wanted to play. We're guessing he doesn't see his normal amount of defensive snaps tonight, but he may not need to. He'll square off against RT Jason Smith.

Insight: In the article, he says, "I don't see how I'm not going to play." That's just coming from him and it doesn't sound like he has medical clearance. Check on his status throughout the week and have other options at the ready, just in case, since this is a Monday night game.

Insight: It's a good sign that he'll be active on Sunday. Whether he's active or not will depend on how he feels during pregame warmups. Justin Trattou was signed off the practice squad just in case Tuck couldn't play.

Insight: Tuck suffered a stinger in the third preseason game and is still being bothered by it. He's practiced in limited fashion and even Tuck admitted that he's concerned but not panicked by it. He'll take it easy the rest of the week, but check his practices the rest of the week and his status game day and have another DL option at the ready, just in case.
