Justin Tuck Calls Flozell Adams' Trip 'Bush League'

Justin TuckARLINGTON, Texas -- A shoulder injury knocked Giants defensive end Justin Tuck out of Sunday night's victory over the Cowboys late in the first half.

Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams kicked Tuck in the knee as he moved past him, and as a result, Tuck fell hard on his left shoulder.

Tuck did not return, and Adams was penalized for tripping.

After the game Tuck said his shoulder was fine, though he could barely lift it, using his right arm to button his shirt. When asked about Adams' play, Tuck said, "It was bush league. He did it a few times in this game. I'd like to have the rest of the game to punish him for it."


Adams said he doesn't remember kicking Tuck.

"I didn't see nothing," Adams said as he walked out of the Cowboys locker room. "Did you see something?"

Tuck did, and believes a fine of some sort will come against Adams. Last year, Tuck injured his leg on a play against the Cowboys.

"It's the second time I got hurt in this crappy stadium," Tuck said.

When told that the Cowboys' current stadium, a $1.2 billion project, is brand new, Tuck reiterated his thought: "It's still crappy."
