The outlook wasn’t good for Giants defensive end Justin Tuck on Friday and it didn’t get any better over the weekend.
Tuck has been scratched from Sunday’s game in Baltimore against the Ravens as a result of the shoulder injury that kept him out of practice all week. The Giants listed him as questionable, but it seemed much closer to doubtful to hear them talk about his chances of playing.
The Giants also will play without safety Kenny Phillips. Phillips said he expected to play during the week despite the knee injury that’s been an issue for him all season. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who was also questionable with a knee injury that kept him out last week, is active for the Giants.
Baltimore will be without safety Bernard Pollard for the second straight week thanks to a chest injury. Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is active after missing that loss to the Broncos.
