Tuck and Nicks active for Giants vs. Rams
Monday, September 19, 2011
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Justin Tuck and leading receiver Hakeem Nicks will be in the New York Giants lineup for Monday night's game against the St. Louis Rams.
Tuck missed the season opener against the Washington Redskins with a neck injury. Nicks suffered a bone bruise to a knee in the game.
Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora and first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara also were inactive.
The Rams did not have to release their inactive list until 7:30 p.m. The big question mark for St. Louis is running back Steven Jackson (quad). He warmed up a little before the game but did not give the impression he was going to play.
The Giants released their list a little early.
