Justin Tuck thinks he has a target on his injured neck.

“I think a lot of teams know I have been having a little issue with it,” he said on his weekly spot on WFAN on Monday. “I don’t want to be Michael Vick here but they are kind of going at my head a little bit too. It is going to be something that we can battle through and it is something that I can battle through right now. As long as I can battle through it, I am going to continue to play and hopefully we can get it quieted down here.”

Tuck did not seem concerned about the injury, although he did say he was having an MRI.

“Barring anything in practice, it’s a situation (where) it’s football and it is a tough sport and you will have bruises and dings and pulls and it hurts,” he said. “But I am not injured … I can definitely deal with it. I am not worried about getting there on Sunday. I don’t see this being an issue where I won't play on Sunday."

Tuck did not speak with reporters in the Giants' locker room on Monday.
