I don't take the time to provide updates on players listed as merely questionable anymore.  But, a kicker injured during the practice week could easily fly under the [smiley=radar.gif] radar.  So, I'm giving yous a heads up...  From "The REAL Feed":

Giants K Tynes questionable for Sunday after spraining ankle (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d81b59a00/article/giants-k-tynes-questionable-for-sunday-after-spraining-ankle)
NFL.com (15.10.2010 16:19)
A sprained plant-foot ankle incurred Friday during practice could keep Giants kickerLawrence Tynes out of the lineup Sunday against the Detroit Lions and force a lateroster addition.
