NFL Network’s Bob Papa reports QB Eli Manning is expected to start for Giants Sunday when they play host to the Raiders.
When the Giants face the Bucs this weekend, their heralded depth along the defensive line could be short a couple of names — as in Justin Tuck and Chris Canty. On Wednesday, Tuck didn’t back down from his opinion of the play by the Cowboys’ Flozell Adams that caused his injury.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn’t offer much of an update on Monday on his two starters injured in Sunday night’s game — WR Domenik Hixon and DE Justin Tuck.
Giants DE Justin Tuck wasn’t too pleased about injuring his left shoulder after being tripped by Cowboys OT Flozell Adams. “It was bush league,” Tuck told The Associated Press after the Giants’ 33-31 victory at Cowboys Stadium. “He did it a few times, and they (the officials) only called one.”
New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride keep a watchful on eye on the giants’ wide receivers in practice.

One question for the New York Giants is how they’re going to replace departed veteran receivers Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer. The answer, as I see it, starts with rookie first-round pick Hakeem Nicks.
While Antonio Pierce was on the field taking part in the first training camp practice with New York Giants on Monday, a NYC grand jury was deliberating his role in the weapons charges brought against ex-teammate Plaxico Burress.
The Giants placed LB Michael Boley and DTs Fred Robbins and Rocky Bernard on the physically unable to perform list.
Every USO Tour — the participants, the location, the moment in time — feels different from every other that came before it or will come after it. This tour, our first in the 43-year history of NFL-USO tours to feature coaches, was perhaps more distinct than others.
When the planning for this trip was in its early stages, one thing that was most important to us was having the opportunity to spend the Fourth of July holiday with our troops who are serving overseas in harm’s way. I think all five coaches on the tour would agree that July 4, 2009 was a day they will long remember.
So, what are the accommodations like on USO tours? We always stay in “DV” quarters, which are on-base accommodations for “Distinguished Visitors.” These quarters can range from having an extra pillow on a standard-issue Army cot in a barrack-style room to comfortable single rooms for each member of the tour.
The first full day in Iraq began with an early wake up call and included meet-and-greets with US troops Mosul and Kirkuk before wrapping up with a Q&A with hundreds of troops at a reception in Baghdad.
