Cardinals vs. Giants Injury Report: Justin Tuck Still Sidelined, Hakeem Nicks & Brandon Stokley Hurting

The Arizona Cardinals will take any advantage against the New York Giants they can get, like possibly seeing Justin Tuck on the sideline this Sunday. 

The pro-bowl defensive end rode the exercise bikes for the second day in a row according to Giants insider Ralph Vacchiano. Tuck has been dealing with both a sore neck and a strained groin after last weeks game with Philadelphia, injuries that could leave him on the shelf against the Cardinals this weekend. Friday's practice will likely be the determining factor in determining Tuck's playing status, but If doesn't suit up this Sunday Osi Umenyiora will be ready and waiting. Osi took part in practice for the second straight day, and will more than likely be ready for the Cardinals. 

Meanwhile in the offensive department, receiver Hakeem Nicks left with an injury but wasn't fully diagnosed yet. He hyper-extended his knee a few weeks ago, which could have flared up. Receiver Brandon Stokley, who suffered a strained quad in practice Wednesday, might be kept from seeing playing time this weekend as well as the strain is worse than originally thought. Receiver Mario Manningham returned to practice after missing nine days with a concussion, which couldn't have come at a better time for New York with their other targets currently ailing.
