O’Hara, Nicks Ruled Out Sunday Against Redskins
EAST RUTHERFORFD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants Pro Bowl center Shaun O’Hara, receiver Hakeem Nicks and backup defensive lineman Dave Tollefson will not play in Sunday’s game against the Redskins in Washington.
Coach Tom Coughlin ruled the three out after they missed practice for the third straight day. O’Hara aggravated an Achilles’ tendon injury in his left foot, while Nicks has a broken big toe on his left foot. Tollefson hurt a knee two games ago.
Cornerback Corey Webster (ribs), defensive tackle Chris Canty (neck) and cornerback Brian Jackson (knee) are questionable.
Defensive ends Justin Tuck (chest) and Osi Umenyiora (knee), safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) and running back Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle) are probable.
Shawn Andrews will take pain medication before Sunday’s game against the Redskins. The New York Giants’ offensive tackle will get an injection of toradol. The medication relieves moderately severe pain.
Andrews needs it to play. The seven-year veteran, who turned 28 on Christmas, has had two back operations and recently missed three games because of back pain.
The Giants (9-6) must win or tie and hope Chicago beats Green Bay to make the playoffs.
