Coach: Shockey to be a game-time decision

By Associated Press
Published November 23, 2003

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Tight end Jeremy Shockey practiced on a limited basis for the second day in a row Saturday, but Giants coach Jim Fassel said his status for Monday night's meeting with the Bucs would not be decided until just before game time.

Shockey is listed as questionable, but a team official said the Giants strongly are leaning against using him only two weeks after he suffered a partial tear of his left posterior cruciate ligament.

"I'm going to be smart with him," Fassel said after Shockey practiced wearing a lighter brace than the one he used Friday.

Fassel said Shockey at times did not appear to be cutting as crisply as usual, and at other times, he was near normal. Shockey declined to speak to reporters.

Left offensive tackle Luke Petitgout skipped practice because of tightness in his back, but Fassel said Petitgout would start. Tim Carter, who has had mild concussions the past two weeks, will not play.

RAIDERS: Kicker Sebastian Janikowski will not face charges stemming from a fight at a restaurant two months ago. "There was insufficient evidence to charge him in the case," deputy Contra Costa County (Calif.) district attorney Bruce Flynn said. A man who had accused Janikowski of assaulting him no longer wanted to press charges. The former Seminole was briefly jailed in September on suspicion of misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor vandalism and public drunkenness after police were called to quell a fight at supper club.
