info from the dark side;

AST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- WR Hakeem Nicks (foot) and RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) did not participate during the early portion of practice on Tuesday.

T David Diehl (knee) and WR Domenik Hixon (concussion) also sat out the portion open to the media.

Cornerbacks Prince Amukamara (ankle) and Michael Coe (hamstring) worked in early practice drills. DE Adewale Ojomo (hamstring) and LB Keith Rivers (hamstring) also worked in positional drills.

Diehl suffered an MCL injury in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. The extent of the injury is unknown at this point.

Bradshaw underwent X-rays on his neck after exiting in the second quarter against the Bucs. His status for Thursday's road game against the Carolina Panthers is up in the air.

Hixon also left Sunday's game in the first quarter with a concussion. It would be very unlikely for a concussed player to be cleared for contact in four days under the new NFL protocols, which require approval both from the team doctor and an independent physician.

Nicks was likely resting his surgically-repaired right foot on Tuesday. He said after a breakout performance Sunday (10 catches, 199 yards) that he'd be fine.

..............

The team is hopeful that Amukamara, out since Aug. 24 with a high ankle sprain, can take the field Thursday. We will have more injury information after speaking with coach Tom Coughlin this afternoon.

Rivera says team will know whos doubtful and questionable tomorrow morning. But 5 guys missed practice today; Bell,TD, Stew, colin jones, and Pollak. Apparently most will be game-time decisions but it's not looking good right now

I liked what I saw from Jones, he lives up to his title. Pollak is a good backup but isn't necessary at the moment. There are a number of guys who could step up if an injury created a need. Stew will play more than likely, we all know he's tough as iron. Bell has come into his own but I believe in the ability of Campbell to take that spot for however long is necessary. Would love for TD to play but if he has anything that feels funky or is hurting, let him rest. Kuech got this and he deserves some more snaps to showcase his abilities.

tl;dr We're fine.
