Shaun Williams is fine with a concussion that was a little bit scary. When I went out to him on the field he wasn't moving around a lot, but I think that he will be fine...

The good news is that the Giants suffered no new major injuries at Washington and should get some players back for the Dallas game. The bad news is far too many players remain hurt.

"We have got a few things that might nag along this week," Jim Fassel said. "(Tackle Mike) Rosenthal hurt his knee and his foot and he might miss a little bit of practice, but he will be all right. Shaun Williams is fine with a concussion that was a little bit scary. When I went out to him on the field he wasn't moving around a lot, but I think that he will be fine. Marcellus Rivers will have his thumb in a cast for a little while, but he should be ready to go. Jason Whittle is banged up and will miss a little time this week, but he will be fine. Reggie Stephens got a concussion, but it is mild and they felt that he will be practicing Wednesday. We have got a couple other concussions with other people.

"(Kato) Serwanga obviously got a hamstring and had to come out and I think that he will be fine. I am not sure Will Allen (shoulder) will be ready this week based on where he is now. He will be doubtful (for the game), I would assume. Will Peterson (concussion), I hope, will be back. I think that everything has cleared up with that and it was probably good that we did not play him because we could have lost him for the year. We have an ankle sprain with Derek Dorris. With Ron Dixon's knee I am a little concerned whether he will make it back or not. I think that it is bothering him more and for this week I think he will be doubtful. Other than that there are a bunch of guys with different things."

Fassel later said he is not yet considering putting Dixon on injured reserve and that Dhani Jones (ankle) will be questionable for the game.
