Giants TE Jeremy Shockey misses practice Wednesdsay

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Pro Bowl tight end Jeremy Shockey missed the New York Giants' practice on Wednesday because of a sprained ankle.

Shockey was hurt in Sunday's 30-7 loss to New Orleans. He has been listed as questionable for Saturday night's game at Washington.

Fullback Jim Finn (back) did not practice on Wednesday. He is probable.

Offensive lineman Rich Seubert (shin) also missed practice and it is unlikely he will play.

Starting guard David Diehl was excused from the workout to attend the birth of his first child. Diehl's wife, Nicole, gave birth to Addison Elizabeth Diehl at 2:35 p.m.

The Giants (7-8) can virtually clinch a playoff berth with a win on Saturday.
