Earlier this week, Giants defensive lineman Justin Tuck said the following about his neck injury: “If I get on that plane and go to Arizona,” he said, “I’m playing.”
Well, he got on the plane.
Multiple New York outlets report that Tuck and Osi Umenyiora were both on the team plane Saturday despite their questionable tags. Tuck is battling a neck injury. Umenyiora is looking to make his season debut after knee surgery.
There’s a good chance both of them will suit up now that they’ve made the cross country trip.
The Giants will also have Mario Manningham (concussion) and Hakeem Nicks (knee) in the lineup. They were listed as probable.
