Giants DE Justin Tuck inactive against Redskins
Sunday, September 11, 2011
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Defensive end Justin Tuck was inactive for the New York Giants on Sunday, another blow for a short-handed defense as it faced the Washington Redskins in the season opener.
Tuck missed most of practice last week with a lingering neck injury.
Defensive end Osi Umemyiora had previously been ruled out with a knee injury, as had rookie cornerback Prince Amukamara, who has a broken foot. Linebacker Jonathan Goff was placed on injured reserve Saturday with a torn knee ligament.
Tight end Travis Beckum, who left practice early Friday when his right hamstring tightened, was also on the inactive list.
Redskins safety LaRon Landry sat out with a hamstring injury. Tight end Chris Cooley was active after missing all of preseason with a sore knee.
