There are numerous rumors, thoughts and ideas swirling all around Giants Stadium as the club approaches its division showdown with Washington this Sunday. Here are The Giants Insider's best mid-week guesses of what will happen:

WR Herman Moore will play. He says he thinks he's a week away and messing up would be a "nightmare," but it seems unlikely that the coaching staff can't at least get him on the field for 10 or so plays and let him use his size to his and the team's advantage… WR Tony Simmons will not play Sunday. He'll either be released by the end of the week, or more likely deactivated before the contest.

WR Derek Dorris will be signed to the active roster at the end of the week and will suit up Sunday. WR Ron Dixon and rookie LB Nick Greisen are both ahead of schedule and will miss this week, but return in Houston the following Sunday

P Matt Allen will hold and be the club's punter Sunday, while Tom Rouen will be inactive. Rouen will not, however, be waived anytime soon

The Giants will split the long-snapping duties, with Jason Whittle handling the short snaps and Chris Bober snapping for punts. Bob Jones will be inactive or waived by the end of the week

And, finally, Jessie Armstead will still try to tear Tiki Barber's head off

By the way, the other WRs to work out Tuesday were Larry Parker and Chris Taylor
