First, the tiny piece of good news for the New York Giants and wide receiver Steve Smith: the partial tear in his pectoral muscle (he suffered in Thursday's practice) will not require surgery and it is not season-ending.

Now the bad: has (obviously) a torn pectoral muscle. He will not play on Sunday when the Giants welcome Dallas to the Meadowlands. And he is considered "week-to-week."

Tom Coughlin declined to attach a timeframe to Smith's injury, but apparently indicated that it would be more than one game. According to our Giants Rapid Reporter Alex Raskin, Coughlin is classifying the injury as "week-to-week."

Yesterday, Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride called Smith's injury a "huge loss," indicating that the injury was more serious than originally believed.

Gilbride is right, of course -- while Hakeem Nicks has been the breakout star in 2010, Smith's presence in the across the field opened up defenses. Additionally, Smith is Eli Manning's go-to receiver in short yardage and on third down, and despite not being the primary end zone target this season, he's still posted better-than-respectable (47 catches for 517 yards) numbers.

"He's always open," Mario Manningham said of Smith, who hasn't missed a game since 2007. "I don't think anybody can cover him."

Gilbride expects to rotate Manningham and Ramses Barden into Smith's spot, depending on what sort of route is called for on an individual play.
