East Rutherford, NJ – The New York Giants will start preparations for this week's game against Washington without defensive linemen Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora, while center David Baas is also not yet ready to practice.
Tuck has been bothered by neck, groin and ankle injuries all season, but his latest issue is a toe problem. He hurt his toe during last Sunday's game against Dallas.
"It's discomfort, it's sore, it's an issue," said Giants head coach Tom Coughlin on Wednesday. "But hopefully it's going to be able to get under control."
Umenyiora has missed the last two games with an ankle injury he sustained in Week 12 against New Orleans. Baas has also missed two games with a neck injury and severe headaches.
