Police: Giants DE Tuck unhurt in New Year's Eve fender-bender

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck and his wife weren't injured when their sport-utility vehicle and another car collided in northern New Jersey on New Year's Eve.

Authorities say the accident, which they described as a fender-bender, occurred around 8:30 p.m. on Route 4 in Teaneck. The cause of the crash remained under investigation Saturday.

The other motorist, driving a Nissan Maxima, also wasn't injured.

Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon said Tuck reported to the team's facility Saturday and that he and his wife "were fine." Hanlon said Tuck would make the trip for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.

NFL Network insider Albert Breer also exchanged text messages with the player's agent, Doug Hendrickson, who wrote: "Tuck's fine. Minor accident, that's it. He is playin."

Tuck was listed as probable for the game with a chest injury unrelated to the accident.
