Giants may not have Justin Tuck at Baltimore

Tuck AP

As the Giants try to show that they can once again win with their backs pressed tightly against the wall, the degree of difficulty could be slightly higher.

Defensive end Justin Tuck may not be able to play.

Tuck has a shoulder injury, which has kept him out of practice the last two days.  Bob Glauber of Newsday said earlier this hour on Pro Football Talk that Tuck is expected to try to practice on Friday.

At best, Tuck is expected to be questionable on Sunday.  Which could make the Giants’ chances of winning doubtful.  Which could knock them out of the playoffs.

    Is it too much to say that this may actually help the Giants? Tuck hasn’t really been great this year.

    How could that make their chances of winning doubtful? He hasn’t done anything to help the team out, it’s probably better if he sits.

    He’s been a major disappointment this year. Almost invisible out there. No great loss.

    He needs to rest. He’s not done a thing other than in two games this year. Let Tracy play, give Kiwi the start at LE and get some real push from the ends. JP is getting doubled too much, and Osi has played somewhat better of late.

    Impact player in name only. Injuries have had the better of him. Used to be fun to watch when he dominated.

    Now playing for the checks.

    Whoever they put across Oher the matador will probably wreak plenty of havoc on Fumblin’ Flacco

    They don’t need him. Baltimore will be “one and done” in the playoffs anyway

    Why not activate Ojomo, the beast from preseason? Agree Tuck has been invisible this season..

  9. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 20, 2012 5:58 PM

    Ojomo is better suited at RE, that would force JP to exclusively play LE (in rotation with Kiwanuka and Tracy?) because you know we cannot depend on Osi exclusively at RE, especially with Ojomo backing him up when he hasn’t played in two months.

    As a skins fan it will be hard to root for baltimore.

    John Mara said the Ravens are lucky to play them.

    Tuck has been mostly a non factor this year so its no great loss. A once great player who is now non productive.

  13. kev86 says: Dec 20, 2012 6:17 PM

    Give him some Pom poms and let the rest of the d-line get to work. Expecting an angry focused effort from the world champions.

    They may not have Justin Tuck, but will their offense show up?

  15. justintuckrule says: Dec 20, 2012 6:33 PM

    We need Rolle to call everyone to practice like he did last year at this very time. Rub some dirt on it and get out there.

  16. siggtacular says: Dec 20, 2012 6:57 PM

    They still have Pierre-Paul, Oher is gonna have his hands full, hopefully he can come through for Joe.

  17. bigbluenoser says: Dec 20, 2012 7:25 PM

    The entire front 4 hasn’t shown up in some time.

    ====================================

    That may change, have you seen our OL in Baltimore? Flacco unfairly gets 100% of the blame, but he’s been taking quite a beating out there.

    If Tuck misses the game this Sunday, that will make two weeks in a row.

    And 13 of 15…

    He’s run his mouth more than running down guys with the ball this year anyway…..

  22. cmdrsmooth says: Dec 20, 2012 9:22 PM

    Overrated.

  23. watermelon1 says: Dec 20, 2012 10:06 PM

    Wow… Flacco defenders even showing up on NY Giants stories to make excuses.

    Guess they are really feeling the heat and trying to convince any remaining sheep they can find that Flacco is the answer and not the problem.

    Good luck with that.

    This is going to be an ugly game. Giants get the W. More booing from the fans in the purple seats every time the offense is on the field.

    A Ray Lewis return would help a little, but the defense will quit by the 2nd half after the 3rd turnover from Flacco.

    Cut him! he’d rather be buying shoes anyways. Give someone else a shot. Plus his bi-polar is rubbing off on JPP and the rest of the D-line. Go Giants!!

  25. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 20, 2012 11:30 PM

    Listen, I’ve been in the house at Knicks and Yankee games more than Tuck has shown up this year. He’s got a lifetime pass from me both on and off the field. He’s a great dude, and is who he purports himself to be. I know first hand. But that doesn’t preclude me from calling it like it is. Just like I did with other Giants since I came along as a fan in the early-mid 80s.

  26. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 20, 2012 11:32 PM

    *Been in the house and Tuck was present at the same time.
