Giants Lose Tuck for Season
Key member of D-line rotation to undergo surgery on foot.
By Michael Eisen, Giants.com

Take this story to go! - RSS | Podcast | Mobile

November 15, 2006

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. ĖDefensive end Justin Tuck, who missed the last three games with a foot injury, will undergo surgery on Friday and miss the remainder of the season. The surgery will repair a Lisfranc injury and will include inserting screws into Tuckís foot. Dr. Robert Anderson will perform the surgery at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

Tuck, a second-year pro, was hurt in the Oct. 23 Monday night victory in Dallas. He has been undergoing treatment in the hope of returning to the field this month or in December. But a follow-up examination earlier this week revealed that little progress had been made and that surgery is the most prudent course of action.

This season, Tuck was the teamís first backup defensive end. He played in six games and had four tackles (two solo), plus six special teams tackles (four solo).

Tuck joined the Giants as a third-round draft choice in 2005 from Notre Dame. As a rookie he played in 14 games with one start and had 19 tackles (15 solo), a sack, a forced fumble and 18 special teams tackles (13 solo).

The Giants today signed tackle Jonathan Dunn to their practice squad. The 6-7, 324-pounder was a seventh-round draft choice by the Cleveland Browns in 2005. He suffered a season-ending ankle in his first training camp and spent the season on injured reserve. Dunn was in Clevelandís training camp this year, but was let go in the final cutdown. He was a three-year starter at right tackle for Virginia Tech.

The Giants had an opening on their practice squad after linebacker Tyson Smith was signed to the active roster on Saturday.[/b]
I hope Umeyiora and Strahan get ack as soon as expected.

Against the Bears, they had William Joseph at that other DE spot.

At least, thats what I remember seeing.

Damn, thats harsh

3 starting quality DEs (2 of which are pro bowl caliber players)

I really liked tuck coming out and thought he would of made a great 3-4 pass rusher

yeah Joseph started there but Adrian Awasom got a lot of snaps. I thought both of them looked alright, in the 2nd half it appeared all the d-lineman were getting tired though, with Joseph at DE and Awasom as the only back up, we only had Jonas Seawright to rotate in at DT, so we had a hard time keeping people fresh.

It may not be for awhile, but we'll be fine without Tuck once Osi and Strahan are back. We miss Tuck in more ways than one though, he wasnt just a great guy to come in and spell the starters or replace strahan or osi, he's an awesome special teams guy.

We signed Tyson Smith to the roster on saturday, which tells me they may start giving Reggie Torbor DE snaps. Either that or Emmons and Short may be out longer than expected.
