Strahan sits out Defensive end Michael Strahan missed Friday's practice, which is never a good thing. Instead of working out with his club, New York's star DE was at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

"Yesterday he was lifting weights and he felt like he pulled a muscle in his chest," Head Coach Jim Fassel said. "He went ahead and (practiced) yesterday, but he was sore today. I had (head trainer) Ronnie (Barnes) take him over and have everything checked out."

Fassel said Strahan was going to undergo an MRI. Fassel indicated the injury will not keep Strahan out of Sunday's home game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The examination revealed that Strahan is suffering from a strained neck. He has been added to the team's injury report as probable. "It's a little painful right now," said Strahan after returning to the stadium from Manhattan, "but I fully expect to play on Sunday."

"We're two days away from the game, and he practiced yesterday," Fassel said. "He's just sore today, and I just want to make sure. It's precautionary. I think it's a muscle."

Strahan has a team-high 11.0 sacks. Should Strahan be unable to play on Sunday, Frank Ferrara would play left end.
