Tuck has opted to retire from the NFL.
After his 11th professional season ended prematurely due to a torn right pectoral, it's no surprise that Tuck has decided to join teammate Charles Woodson in retirement. Prior to landing in Oakland, though, he was a veritable force in a fearsome defensive front for the Giants, winning Super Bowls in 2007 and 2011. Overall, he'll conclude his career with four double-digit sack campaigns en route to 66.5 sacks in 147 games, during which he also contributed 22 forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, and three interceptions (one for a touchdown).
The Raiders are expected to place veteran defensive end Justin Tuck (torn right pectoral muscle) on IR, according to CSN Bay Area.
With Tuck slated to have surgery in the next few days, look for Mario Edwards to replace him in the starting lineup, beginning with the Oct. 25 contest against San Diego.
Coach Jack Del Rio relayed Wednesday that the MRI on Tuck's injured shoulder is "not good," the Sacramento Bee reports.
While Del Rio would not speculate whether the injury could land Tuck on season-ending injured reserve, at this stage it looks like the defensive end is bound to miss some action.
Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck (neck) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.
Tuck was able to log full practices both Thursday and Friday, so it's no surprise to see him take the field Sunday afternoon. The 32-year-old has nine combined tackles so far this season and will look to build on that total in the road matchup.
If defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh doesn't sign a long-term deal with the Lions, then he will become a free agent March 10 and there will be plenty of teams interested in the Pro Bowl lineman.
Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck indicated if Suh wanted to sign with Oakland, then he would be welcomed in Raider Nation.
"(He's) Raider-ish," Tuck said, per the Detroit Free Press. "And that's one of the reasons why I know Raider Nation would applaud that move, beyond the fact that he's an awesome football player. He kind of fits the mold of ... the toughness and the ferocious player that built the Oakland Raiders."
It is speculated Suh will receive a contract worth at least $100 million. Tuck believes the three-time All-Pro deserves such a lucrative deal.
"The thing about him, you know what you're getting every day. Some of the tactics, you could probably do without, but he's a hell of a football player," Tuck said. "I would love to have the opportunity to line up beside of him and let him take all the double teams that I normally take."
