Hakeem Nicks And Justin Tuck Both Active For Giants

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck missed the season opening-loss to Washington with a neck injury. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks suffered a bone bruise to his knee in that game.

Both were supposed to be game-time decisions for tonight's Monday Night Football matchup against the St. Louis Rams, but the Ram's official Twitter account has confirmed that New York's leading receiver and two-time Pro Bowl defensive end will be active. 

Last Tuesday, Tuck said his neck felt better and he was confident he would play against the Rams. Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, who watched the Giants warm up, reports that Nicks looks fine:

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.
