Friday’s Giants Headlines

Wide receiver Steve Smith strained a pectoral muscle reaching for a pass in practice, and his status for Sunday’s game against Dallas is unclear.

Nicks was one of five people the school said provided “impermissible gifts of cash and jewelry and impermissible assistance” with travel and entertainment expenses.

Wade Phillips has been fired and Jason Garrett installed as interim coach in Dallas, and now Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell’s name is being bandied about — both by Cris Collinsworth on NBC and by Dallas print media to Justin Tuck — as a potential Cowboys coach in 2011.
