Will P, Stray OK
The most serious injury suffered by the Giants in the Dallas game was Damon Washington's stretched knee ligaments.

Fassel estimated it to be a three-to-four-week injury. Fassel said cornerback Will Peterson, who left the game with a stinger, and defensive end Michael Strahan, who was limited by a neck strain, should be ready for the Colts. "I think (Strahan) will be a lot better," Fassel said. "Will Peterson should be ready to play."

Early start
Jim Fassel almost always arrives in his office before most working people are out of bed, but this was unusual even for him: he was at his desk at 4:45 this morning, thanks to an inadvertent alarm in his home.

"Somebody moved the hour time on my clock," he said. "The alarm went off and I got out of bed, took a shower, got dressed and said to myself, 'Damn, I'm tired. Boy this was a rough night.' So I am showered and dressed and ready to leave and my wife comes back up from downstairs and asked, 'Do you know what time it is?' So I said, 'Yeah, it's 5:15' and she answered, 'No, it's 4 in the morning.' She asked if I wanted to come back and lay down and I said that I couldn't. So I just came in and watched the tape (of the game) early."
