Notes: FB Henry Hynoski (neck), G Chris Snee (concussion), and CB Prince Amukamara (foot) are out Sunday. … LS Zak DeOssie and C David Baas are questionable. LB Michael Boley (knee) is probable. DeOssie will be a gametime decision, but said he has passed all the concussion tests he’s been given to date, with one more to go. … Coach Tom Coughlin said Snee is making progress every day from his first career concussion, but not enough to allow him to play. Coughlin said he rarely talks about the concussion with Snee, his son-in-law. … The Giants plan to elevate someone from the practice squad, most likely DT Dwayne Hendricks, to fill the roster spot of suspended DT Jimmy Kennedy (illegal substance).
