Giants WR Hakeem Nicks, DE Justin Tuck To Sit Out Preseason Opener
Preferring a cautious approach, the Giants will sit star players Hakeem Nicks (groin) and Justin Tuck (back) for the preseason opener tonight against the Steelers here in Pittsburgh.
Here is a full list of inactives for tonight, per the team.
OL James Brewer (concussion), WR Brandon Collins (hamstring), FB Henry Hynoski (PUP-knee), DT Markus Kuhn (PUP-knee), WR Hakeem Nicks (groin), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (PUP-back), OT Justin Pugh (concussion), G Chris Snee (hip), S Cooper Taylor (hamstring), DB Terrell Thomas (knee/hamstring), RB Ryan Torain (concussion) and DE Justin Tuck (back).
Tom Coughlin was still unsure about Nicks on Thursday, same with Tuck. Not risking long-term injury makes sense.
