CB Asante Samuel, who had an interception that set up the Eagles’ first-half touchdown — the only touchdown to that point — had to be administered an IV to replenish fluids at the start of the third quarter. He returned to the Eagles’ sideline after the Giants kicked a field goal early in the third quarter.
Midway through the third quarter, there have been no sacks in the game, but New York does have a safety. The Giants’ chances to get a sack could have just taken at blow as DE Justin Tuck suffered some sort of left leg injury. He was on the field for a moment, but he walked off under his own power after being tended to by trainers. He returned after missing one play following an apparent knee injury. Tuck doesn’t look fully healthy, but he’s back.
