Chris Canty out of Sunday's game

The bad news for the New York Giants comes courtesy of Mike Garafolo.

Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty will be sidelined for the first time in his NFL career this coming Sunday.

Canty, who must have been looking forward to facing the Cowboys after they allowed him to sign with their division rivals this off-season, will be out at least one week with a calf injury suffered in practice on Wednesday, someone informed of the diagnosis confirmed. NFL.com was first to report Canty would be sidelined.

The person informed of Canty's injury said he suffered a strain that won't require surgery. The person said Canty might miss a few games but "he won't be out too long." In fact, the person refused to rule out Canty for the Week 3 game against the Buccaneers. It appears Canty's status is what Tom Coughlin usually calls "week to week."

Since the Giants released Leger Douzable this week that leaves them with three defensive tackles able to play. We'll see if they gamble and stay with three, bring Douzable back or maybe add Anthony Bryant off the practice squad.
