Nittmo, 23, may or may not be the Giants' kicker in the divisional playoff game against the Rams Sunday. Allegre is eligible to be activated off injured reserve, and Coach Bill Parcells said he'll wait until Friday afternoon before deciding if he's going to make a switch. If the veteran Allegre gets the nod, Nittmo will likely be put on waivers or injured reserve and won't be eligible for the playoffs.
"I don't know what's going to happen," Nittmo said. "I'm just waiting like everybody else. But it would be nice to know, though."
Nittmo has kicked well, making nine of 12 field-goal attempts, but he hasn't made one longer than 39 yards (he's missed two from 47) and hasn't had to attempt a game-deciding kick.
If Parcells decides to use Allegre, Nittmo has no regrets. He's gotten a lot of exposure, including an appearance on "Late Night With David Letterman," where he was introduced as the only Bjorn Nittmo in the New Jersey telephone book.
