East Rutherford, NJ – New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks put in a second straight limited practice on Friday, though the team still termed him questionable for this weekend's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Nicks has been hampered by knee problems throughout this season and sat out three consecutive games with recurring soreness earlier in the year. He was active for last Sunday's matchup at Baltimore, but did not record a catch in the Giants' 33-14 loss to the Ravens.
Safety Kenny Phillips and defensive end Justin Tuck were also listed as questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale after practicing on a limited basis on Friday. Phillips has not played since Week 13 due to a knee injury, while Tuck missed the Baltimore game with an ailing shoulder.
The Giants will likely be without two other defensive starters for their must- win encounter with the Eagles, however, with cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and tackle Chris Canty (knee) both declared doubtful for the contest. Rookie nickel back Jayron Hosley is also doubtful to play after hurting his quadriceps in Thursday's session.
Leading rusher Ahmad Bradshaw, who returned last Sunday from a one-week absence caused by a sprained knee, is probable to face the Eagles. Guard Chris Snee (hip) and center David Baas (hip/shoulder) are also on track to play.
New York needs to defeat the Eagles and have Chicago, Dallas and Minnesota all lose on Sunday in order to return to the playoffs as a wild card.
