Giants getting reinforcements tonight

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

The New York Giants will have some familiar faces return to the lineup in tonight's preseason game in Chicago. Wide receiver Steve Smith, defensive tackle Fred Robbins and cornerback Corey Webster should all be starting against the Bears.

Coach Tom Coughlin had become frustrated by Smith's injury (knee) because he wanted his wide receiver to be developing chemistry with Eli Manning. With Smith on the field tonight, Manning should feel a little more comfortable. It will also be nice to see Robbins back in action. He got off to the best start of his career in '08 before getting banged up down the stretch.
