Justin Tuck Injury Update: Toe Injury Could Sideline Him

Justin Tuck's miserable, injury-filled 2011 season just continues to get worse. The New York Giants defensive end and captain said Monday that he is dealing with a toe injury and has "no clue" if he will be able to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Tuck recorded no tackles or sacks on Sunday in the Giants' 37-34 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, and said the toe injury made him feel as though he was "playing on one leg."

Tuck has dealt with a myriad of injuries this season. He has had neck, groin, ankle and now toe injuries. The neck and groin injuries have caused the Pro Bowl defensive end to miss four games, and have limited his effectiveness. After registering 11.5 sacks and a career-high 104 tackles a season ago Tuck has only three sacks and 32 tackles this season.

If Tuck is unable to play, the Giants would have only three healthy defensive ends -- Jason Pierre-Paul, Dave Tollefson and rookie undrafted free agent Justin Trattou. Reports indicate that Osi Umenyiora's ankle injury will likely sideline him once again.
