Injury report: Tuck practices

August, 20, 2013
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Justin Tuck suffered a mild hamstring injury on Sunday against the Colts but was back on the practice field on Tuesday.

The defensive end worked in practice and appears to be good. The Giants, though, are banged up elsewhere.

Besides Victor Cruz (bruised heel) and David Baas (left MCL sprain) (both on crutches), the Giants have offensive lineman David Diehl wearing a protective cast over his right hand to protect a thumb injury.

Wide receivers Louis Murphy (leg) and Ramses Barden (knee) both did not practice on Tuesday.

"Murphy’s here but he has a sore leg," Tom Coughlin said. "They’re going to do all the tests on him and see what the problem is."

Adrian Tracy also had to leave practice on a cart. Coughlin said he believed Tracy was suffering from dehydration.

Safety Cooper Taylor (hamstring) did return to practice. Wide receivers Jerrel Jernigan and Brandon Collins did practice.

Defensive end Damontre Moore (shoulder), safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) and cornerback Corey Webster (soreness) did not practice. But Rolle moved very well in individual drills and is nearing a return to practice.
