New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said he was going to have an MRI on Monday. But on Tuesday morning, the defensive end wouldn’t reveal what body part the MRI was for.

Tuck is still experiencing pain in his neck from an injury he suffered in the preseason. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that Tuck has a strained groin as well.

During an interview on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton show on Tuesday morning, Tuck was evasive when asked about an MRI. “The neck’s good,” Tuck told WFAN. “Just precautionary stuff. It’s football, guys are gonna get banged up. So don’t worry about it, I’ll be out there Sunday.”

On Monday during his weekly spot on WFAN with Mike Francesa, Tuck said, “actually I am heading to get an MRI right now” when he was being asked several questions about his neck. He also told Francesa that opponents have been going after his neck, knowing it’s hurting. But today, he told Boomer and Carton that his neck was not the reason for an MRI.

Tuck missed the season opener with the neck injury and had to briefly leave the Giants’ win over the Rams due to pain in his neck.
