New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith out for the season

By Cindy Boren

In his first game back after missing a month because of a torn pectoral muscle, New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith injured his knee Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings and will be out the rest of the season.

Smith will undergo surgery, according to the New York Daily News. He will be placed on the injured-reserve list, so he would be out for the playoffs as well.

"Steve will not be able to play any more," Coach Tom Coughlin said. "I feel bad for Steve. He fights his way back and then this injury. Our entire thoughts for the team are with Steve. First news was it may have been a hamstring or that type of injury."
