Steve Smith doesn’t believe he’ll be the same for the rest of this season.
That doesn’t mean he won’t suit up.
The Giants wide receiver said after Sunday's 31-7 victory over the Redskins that his chances of playing against the Vikings on Sunday are “pretty good.” Smith, who was limited in practice last week, has missed the past four games with a partially torn pectoral muscle.
“It still hurts, but I’m going to have to deal with that for the rest of the year,” he said. “Just try it out (this) week and see how it feels.”
Smith wore a harness on his right arm while catching passes last week.
“It doesn’t help going across my body. I’m just not going to be able to do that for a while,” he said, adding, “I’m not going to be able to get rid of defenders this way (across his body). I’m just going to have to do something else.”
