Giants defensive end Justin Tuck (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's NFC wild-card showdown against the Atlanta Falcons, according to the team.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Tuck’s shoulder is "sore," but the defensive end would not comment on any questions related to his injury. Tuck did not practice Friday. He has been banged up all season, and has also dealt with injuries to his neck, groin, toe and ankle.

Tight end Jake Ballard (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee) and Corey Webster (hamstring) are also listed as probable. Linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle) is out.

Ballard, who has missed the last two games with a strained PCL and has been limited in practice this week, says he'll "absolutely" play vs. the Falcons. Coughlin said he's optimistic about Ballard's chances of playing after he ended the week on "an up note."

Webster, who appeared on the injury report for the first time on Thursday, was fine on Friday, Coughlin said.
