Postgame DE Justin Tuck


Giants Defensive End Justin Tuck

On his injury:
"The coaches said it was best to wait one more week. The plan is to wait one more week. I wanted to play this week. I'm still not 100 percent, but I wanted to give it a go. The doctor said 'we would rather have you out one week than re-aggravating it and going through this process again and be out for a month'. It was a precautionary thing."

On the game:
"You always want to be out there with your teammates. Hopefully, I will get that shot next week. I think the referees should throw more holding calls. I don't even know why it is a rule in the game if it doesn't get called. We are already off to a bad start, we lost a game. We are resilient. We will bounce back. What better way than at home Monday night. We are looking forward to it. If we can get some guys back we will be close to full strength."
Giants Kicker Lawrence Tynes

On him kicking:
"It is going to take another couple of weeks to get back into kicking shape. I have to get to work. There was a lot of blood on the quad for two or three weeks. Just getting back to the number of kicks where I need to feel good. I was tired after pregame."

On the block:
"I got ran over. I am not a very good tackler so I just got ran over. I felt like I hit it like I hit all of my kicks. They are not always going to be real high. Steve said I hit it good and that sounds good to him. We will look at film tomorrow. Any way you look at it, it is a miss."
