Friday injury report: Osi back as expected

Here's the latest Giants injury report:


FB Madison Hedgecock -- Likely out for a third-straight game. TE Bear Pascoe will probably start again at fullback.

DE Mathias Kiwanuka -- Out indefinitely with herniated disk in neck.

DE Justin Tuck -- Surprise appearance on injury report with an ankle injury he says he has been dealing with for weeks. Tuck said he will practice on Saturday and play against Dallas.

WR Hakeem Nicks -- Also a surprise addition to injury report. Nicks said his hamstring is tight from fatigue but he said he "definitely" will play against Dallas.


DE Osi Umenyiora -- Umenyiora has been managing a knee issue for weeks now. The routine now is to sit out the first day of practice and then work the rest of the week. No change this week after he skipped Thursday (the first day practice this week with a Monday night game) for precautionary reasons and worked a bit on Friday. Expect him to be chasing Tony Romo on Monday night.

LB Keith Bulluck (toe), DB Brian Jackson (neck), K Lawrence Tynes (left ankle) and RB D.J. Ware (groin) all practiced fully.
