Injuries taking toll on Giants

Updated: November 7, 2006, 3:02 PM ET
The Giants head into the biggest game of the season with a rash of injuries on defense most notably at the defensive end position. Michael Strahan injured his foot against the Texans will miss 2-4 weeks and possibly longer.

Even though he has only three sacks this season, Strahan has been a force as he has put pressure on opposing quarterbacks with 11 hurries and 10 quarterback hits. Strahan causes opposing offenses to account for him in their protection schemes and they have to double team him with a back or tight end which means one less receiver for the pass coverage to account for. He is fourth on the team with 33 total combined tackles.
