Tuck and Phillips were both ruled inactive prior to the game. Tuck injured his shoulder during last week’s 34-0 loss to Atlanta. The defensive end traveled to Baltimore and will be on the sideline cheering on the Giants. Osi Umenyiora will start opposite Jason Pierre-Paul.
Head coach Tom Coughlin was optimistic about Phillips' availability earlier last week, but the safety will miss his third straight game with an MCL injury.
