EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey will miss the regular-season finale against the Washington Redskins on Saturday because of an ankle injury.

Shockey didn’t practice all week, and did not accompany the team to Washington on Friday, team spokesman Avis Roper said. The Pro Bowl tight end had been listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game.

A win at Washington would virtually assure the Giants (7-8) of a playoff berth.

On Thursday, Shockey was seen walking through the locker room with a noticeable limp and appeared to favor his left ankle.

Shockey was hurt in Sunday’s 30-7 loss to New Orleans.
