The Giants’ shaky offensive line is likely going to be missing its most consistent player on Sunday.
Giants center Shaun O’Hara was listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against Tennessee. Adam Koets should make his first NFL start. Safety Michael Johnson (back) was ruled out, while defensive lineman Justin Tuck is questionable with a shoulder injury that kept him out of practice Friday.
Tuck said he’ll play Sunday. “Pain-wise,
you kind of get that gladiator mode,” Tuck said via the New York Daily News. “I don’t know how to
explain it, but you don’t really worry about it.”
It’s a critical week for Tuck, whose leadership has seemingly been questioned from within. The Giants like to think they are the mature team in New York, but every loss over the last two seasons seems to bring fresh wave of drama.
The Titans have injury problems of their own. They will be without starting defensive end Jacob Ford. Defensive tackle Tony Brown is questionable with a knee injury.
