|Tuck and Nicks will play against the Rams in MNF. (US PRESSWIRE)|
Posted by Ryan Wilson
The Rams will be without Steven Jackson in Monday night's matchup with the Giants, but New York, another team decimated by injuries early in the season, will have two of their best players on the field.
Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) and defensive end Justin Tuck (neck) will play. Both players were listed as questionable earlier this week, but in the past few days it appeared clear that they would suit up barring a setback.
The Newark Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo writes Monday night that "Nicks looked just fine in warmups, running well and getting downfield as normal on a deep ball from Eli Manning. Tuck was not on the field before inactives were announced. He will take part in the team stretch. After practicing all of last week, including in Thursday's full-pads session, he should be fine."
As for those inactives, DE Osi Umenyiora, TE Travis Beckum, CB Prince Amukamara, WR Jerrel Jernigan, RB Da’Rel Scott, OT James Brewer and OG Mitch Petrus are down for the Giants.
For the Rams: Jackson, DB Jermale Hines, LB Jabara Williams, DL C.J. Ah You, WR Danny Amendola, WR Austin Pettis and TE Stephen Spach will not play.
