Giants WR Steve Smith will miss Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a partially torn pectoral muscle. He suffered the injury during practice on Thursday.

Smith set a franchise record with 107 catches in 2009. He has 47 receptions for 517 yards and three TDs this season.

C Shaun O'Hara (foot) and OLT David Diehl (hamstring/hip) also have been ruled out.

The way we see it

With Smith out, the Cowboys' secondary can key on WR Hakeem Nicks. WR Mario Manningham also could see some more looks. Backup C Adam Koets is on I.R. and the Giants' O-line continues to be injury-plagued. O'Hara should be back next week. The Giants did activate OL Kevin Boothe from the physically-unable-to-perform list and Shawn Andrews will be the left tackle.
