Early Saturday afternoon, the New York Giants officially announced their inactive players list for their first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. And to say it was a long one would be an understatement.
The inactives include defensive end Justin Tuck (back), wide receivers Hakeem Nicks (groin) and Brandon Collins (hamstring), offensive linemen James Brewer (concussion), Justin Pugh (concussion) and Chris Snee (hip), defensive backs Cooper Taylor (hamstring) and Terrell Thomas (knee/hamstring), running back Ryan Torain (concussion) and all remaining players on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list: fullback Henry Hynoski (knee), defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee) and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (back).
On the other side of things, the Steelers have not yet officially announced their inactives — that announcement usually does not come until 90 minutes before kickoff. However, it's already known that wide receiver Plaxico Burress (pectoral) will miss the game, as well as tight end Matt Spaeth (foot) and cornerback Cortez Allen (knee).
Note: Additional inactives may be released prior to kickoff.
