Giants' Daluiso Out For Season

The New York Giants won the battle Monday night but lost kicker Brad Daluiso for the remainder of this season, SportsLine has confirmed.

A nine-year veteran, Daluiso tore the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee while tackling Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kevin Mathis on the final play of New York's 13-10 victory, a game in which the kicker provided the winning points with a 22-yard field goal.

The injury occurred on the ensuing kickoff, as the Cowboys twice lateraled the short kick to Deion Sanders on a rugby-type play. The Cowboys scored on the bizarre play, but the touchdown was negated when officials ruled Sanders' flip to Mathis was a forward lateral.

SportsLine has learned the Giants will work out a group of kickers that includes Cary Blanchard, who was released by Washington in camp, much-traveled Scott Bentley and Brian Gowins, who recently was cut by the Chicago Bears. In two appearances with Chicago, Gowins made 4 of 6 field goal attempts.

Daluiso, 31, leads the Giants with 30 points and made 7 of 9 field goal attempts in six games.
