Three Starters have MRI's

Three starters were sent for MRI's on Monday following the 21-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys. While the team did not reveal the full results of those tests, head coach Jim Fassel said TE Jeremy Shockey's toe injury was not serious.

The Giants injury list grew significantly following the Sunday 21-17 win over division rival Dallas.

Tight end Jeremy Shockey (turf toe), Offensive guard Jason Whittle (back spasms) and cornerback Will Peterson (dislocated toe) all had MRIs Monday following the Sunday game at Texas Stadium.

The Giants did not announce the results of those tests, but according to Newsday, head coach Jim Fassel said in a radio interview that Shockey's test results did not reveal any serious damage.

Defensive end Kenny Holmes (elbow) who was already injured sat out most of the Sunday contest with Fassel saying Holmes might be limited for a while.

Other minor injuries include cornerback Will Allen (groin), linebacker Dhani Jones (hamstring), and wide receiver Amani Toomer who was favoring his left leg.

Fassel said he has "no choice" but to have the team practice without full pads this week.
