Giants' Justin Tuck Limited By Nagging Neck Injury, Could Be Sidelined For Cardinals Game

A nagging neck injury threatens to keep Justin Tuck off the field this weekend for the Giants.

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck dealt with a shoulder injury suffered in 2009 until very recently. Now, he's replaced it with a nagging neck injury that threatens to keep him on the sidelines.

Tuck missed the season opener against the Redskins and had to leave Sunday's victory over the Eagles at a critical point: a goal-line stand in the third quarter. Even when he's on the field, he's affected, as he said the nagging stinger he suffered in the preseason "physically takes away from the God-given talents I have to be a good defensive end."

Head coach Tom Coughlin says that he believes Tuck will be available for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, however it could be a game-time decision. Just don't tell that to Tuck.

"If I get on that plane and go to Arizona," he said, "I’m playing."
