EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith left practice early Thursday after straining his pectoral muscle. He sustained the injury when extending for a ball on a pass down the middle.

"Steve Smith went for a ball today and strained, what they are calling right now, is a strained pec," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said in a post-practice press conference. "He had trouble driving his arm after the injury so he couldn't continue. I don't have anything to tell you about him until they do all of the tests."

Smith has played in eight games this season and is the second leading wide receiver for the Giants with 47 receptions, 517 yards and three touchdowns. He's amassed more than 100 yards in two games so far this year.
