Giants DE Justin Tuck vows to play after bye week
Sunday, October 16, 2011
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Justin Tuck expects to be back for the New York Giants' next game in two weeks.
Tuck has been sidelined for three games and has no intention of missing a fourth.
"I'm playing against Miami, guys. How about that?" the Giants' defensive captain said Sunday after New York (4-2) beat the Buffalo Bills 27-24 to move into first place in the NFC East. "So you can stop asking me about injuries."
Tuck has been out because of a combination of neck and groin injuries, with the groin being more of a problem in recent weeks. He also missed the season opener with the neck injury, sustained in a preseason game against the Jets.
