"I am concerned but I am not panicked," Tuck told reporters "It is getting better but just not as fast as I want it to. .. "We are going to do what's best. You don't want to go out there and lose a season off of one game. But if I'm ready to play I will definitely strap it up." It sounds like the Giants are legitimately concerned enough about Tuck's status that Dave Tollefson might start against the Washington Redskins.
"We have a plan," defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said. "If Tuck plays, that's a bonus for us."
"He says he is better every day but to this point he hasn't practiced the way we would like him to," coach Tom Coughlin said. "We are trying to get it absolutely pain-free and it is not quite there. You don't want to set it back and then you would have some issues."
