Justin Tuck’s status is up in the air after being hurt on an illegal trip -- which Tuck called "bush" -- by Cowboys tackle Flozell Adams on Sunday night. The Giants defensive end did avoid major injury, however:
Will DE Justin Tuck be available on Sunday against the Buccaneers? Well, that remains to be seen. And it would be quite the comeback from Sunday night in the postgame locker room when Tuck couldn’t even move his left arm. But two people informed of the results of tests done on Tuck’s injured shoulder on Monday indicated the damage wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Both requested anonymity because the Giants haven’t divulged the specifics of the injury. One person said he’s “okay,” while the other concurred with that assessment. While Tuck might be “okay” in the long run, his short-term status for this weekend probably won’t be fully known until later this week.
