The New York Giants have been being cautionary with defensive end and captain Justin Tuck with his back, as it had been experiencing tightness last week and an injury that made the team keep him on the sidelines for the first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Saturday.

This coming Sunday however, Tuck is expecting to play for the Giants when they play their second preseason game of the summer at MetLife Stadium against the Indianapolis Colts.

On Monday, Tuck has returned to practicing with the Giants, as he had sat out a couple of days to rest his back and prevent any further injuries to it. The 30-year-old defensive end has dealt with his share of injuries over the past few years; injuries which have hampered his progress as one of the drop defensive ends in the league.

Back in 2011, Tuck was forced to miss four games and only had five sacks in the regular season; although Tuck did step his play up in the postseason. Last season, Tuck had a career low four sacks despite playing in 15 of the 16 games for the Giants.

Tuck is in the final year of the five-year, $30 million deal he signed back in January of 2008 and will make $4.5 million this season and is seen as one of the current Giants who is in a make-or-break year with regards to his future with the team.
