Giants DE Tuck inactive vs. Redskins

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was inactive Sunday for the season opener against the Washington Redskins.

Tuck has a lingering neck injury he suffered in a preseason game against the Jets on August 29 and was limited in practice during the week.

He had 11.5 sacks and 76 tackles last season, his sixth with New York.

The Giants were already without many top defensive players, including defensive end Osi Umenyiora (right knee surgery) and rookie cornerback Prince Amukamara (fractured bone in left foot).
