Defensive end Justin Tuck (shoulder) headlined a group of three New York Giants who quietly underwent surgery following the team's Super Bowl run, coach Tom Coughlin revealed Friday at the NFL Combine.
Defensive tackles Chris Canty (knee) and Linval Joseph (ankle) also had surgery, according to Coughlin. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who was hindered by a broken foot during the second half of the season, is not expected to require any offseason procedures.
None of the three Giants Coughlin named are expected to miss time at the beginning of 2012.
Tuck was held out of a practice prior to New York's NFC Wild-Card round game against the Atlanta Falcons due to his ailing shoulder, but both he and the team were quiet about the specifics of the injury. The defensive end battled through a number of injury-related issues during the regular season, missing four games.
