EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ New York Giants rookie receiver Ron Dixon was suspended for Sunday’s game with the Pittsburgh Steelers for showing up late for practice the day before.

Dixon was also late for a Saturday practice before the season opener against the Arizona Cardinals, and coach Jim Fassel had told him he would be suspended if he was late again.

The third-round draft choice from Lambuth University had six catches for 92 yards and a 21.2 average on 24 kickoff returns.
