Justin Tuck In Car Accident

TMZ was first to report Saturday night that New York Giants star Justin Tuck and his wife were involved in a minor SUV accident during the evening in Teaneck, N.J.

Tuck was apparently driving a brand new Cadillac Escalade when he collide with another driver in a Nissan Maxima. Reached at home by TMZ, Tuck and his wife, Lauran, told TMZ "We're fine."

The Giants, of course, have had enough misfortune the past couple of weeks. They need their defensive captain healthy Sunday when they face the Washington Redskins in a game they have to win to have a chance to reach the playoffs.

Tuck was recently named to the second Pro Bowl of his career.

If you are like me, as soon as you heard 'Tuck' and 'car accident' you had a sinking feeling. I know my mind also flashed immediately to Chad Jones, the Giants third-round pick last April who nearly lost his foot after an awful car wreck last spring and may never play again.

Forgetting football for just a second, thank goodness it seems the only things that really got hurt here were Tuck's SUV and a street sign.
