East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem
Nicks put in a second straight limited practice on Friday, though the team
still termed him questionable for this weekend's game against the Philadelphia
Nicks has been hampered by knee problems throughout this season and sat out
three consecutive games with recurring soreness earlier in the year. He was
active for last Sunday's matchup at Baltimore, but did not record a catch in
the Giants' 33-14 loss to the Ravens.
Safety Kenny Phillips and defensive end Justin Tuck were also listed as
questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale after practicing on a limited
basis on Friday. Phillips has not played since Week 13 due to a knee injury,
while Tuck missed the Baltimore game with an ailing shoulder.
The Giants will likely be without two other defensive starters for their must-
win encounter with the Eagles, however, with cornerback Prince Amukamara
(hamstring) and tackle Chris Canty (knee) both declared doubtful for the
contest. Rookie nickel back Jayron Hosley is also doubtful to play after
hurting his quadriceps in Thursday's session.
Leading rusher Ahmad Bradshaw, who returned last Sunday from a one-week
absence caused by a sprained knee, is probable to face the Eagles. Guard Chris
Snee (hip) and center David Baas (hip/shoulder) are also on track to play.
New York needs to defeat the Eagles and have Chicago, Dallas and Minnesota all
lose on Sunday in order to return to the playoffs as a wild card.
