Before long, Justin Tuck will be looking through a cage to try to see the football field in front of him. After he returned from a neck injury last season to help the Giants win a Super Bowl, Tuck had quite a few extra bars on his facemask to protect his neck from being jammed or poked at. The photo on the left that you see above shows Tuck’s facemask during the postseason last year. The photo on the right, which Paul Lukas of Uni Watch shared on Twitter, is supposedly the facemask that Tuck plans to wear this season. That should keep him safe.
If you ever combined this facemask with the chrome helmets Oregon wore during the Rose Bowl, we’d see running backs running the other way if they saw Tuck coming.
