Friday practice report: Tuck on the bike
By Ian Begley
Justin Tuck rode the stationary bike on the sideline during the open portion of Giants practice on Friday. It is unclear at the moment why Tuck, who offered a harsh self-critique on Thursday, would miss practice.
As expected, running back Ahmad Bradshaw and starting middle linebacker Michael Boley sat out of practice. Barring something unforeseen, both should be ruled out of Sunday night's Eagles game later Friday when the official injury report is released.
Bradshaw has missed the last two games due to a fractured bone in his foot. He is forgoing surgery for the moment and attempting to play with the ailment. Boley hurt his hamstring last Sunday in San Francisco. Both he and Bradshaw have missed both practices this week.
If Bradshaw can't go, Brandon Jacobs should see a significant amount of carries against the Eagles.
Also, rookie corner Prince Amukamara worked during the open portion on Friday and could see his first game action on Sunday night.
