New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck is not expected to play Sunday due to lingering neck and groin injuries while defensive end Osi Umenyiora is expected to make his 2011 season debut after undergoing knee surgery this summer, according to sources. Tuck still plans to test his injuries in pregame warm-ups and always could change his mind, but his mindset going into Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals is that he will not play. As for Umenyiora, some teams around the league are monitoring him to see whether it would be worth their time to pursue a trade for the former Pro Bowl defensive end who wants out of New York. Tuck did not practice Wednesday or Thursday before going through a limited practice Friday because of a strained groin and pain in his neck. Umenyiora missed the first three games while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery he had on Aug. 19.
