(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer New York Giants middle linebacker Mark Herzlich isn't preparing any differently for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's just a little more exciting for the cancer survivor who was the feel-good story of last season after making the Giants' roster.
Herzlich has a chance to get back in the starting lineup with Chase Blackburn nursing a hamstring injury.
Blackburn, who was hurt in the Giants' 29-24 win over Dallas, did not practice Wednesday. He spent the warm-up riding a stationary bike.
It's a big game for the Giants (6-2), who have used a four-game winning streak to open a 2 1/2-game lead in the NFC East.
Pittsburgh (4-3) will be bringing a two-game winning streak to its first game at MetLife Stadium.

The slightly altered session was held in the late afternoon instead of the morning to give assistant coaches — who...

Giants receiver Victor Cruz (calf) fully participated in Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Cruz' calf injury was never expected to keep him out of Sunday's game. Start him and expect a bounce-back week for the Giants big-play receiver.
