Giants rule out Hakeem Nicks and Ahmad Bradshaw

Ahmad Bradshaw AP

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw won’t undergo surgery on his cracked foot, but he is going to sit out at least one game.

The Giants downgraded Bradshaw, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee), and center David Baas (knee) to out after they didn’t travel with the team to New England.

That’s the bad news, although it’s not a huge surprise.

The good news is that Jason Pierre-Paul (neck) and Prince Amukamara both made the trip.  JPP is a gametime decision, but his travel bodes well.

    he kid a chance!

    Slappy White can play receiver Sunday and he’s getting open on that secondary.

    I’m an Eagles fan but I’m with you 10nygeliteeli, Da’rel Scott can definitely add another dimension to the NYG offense. And that’s with or without Bradshaw in the lineup.

    as a pats fan thats the least of my worries. im more concerned about osi, tuck. kiwunaka, and pierre paul. they can all rush the qb and woodley ran by vollmer last week consistently. big test for offensive line of patriots

    It doesn’t matter who the Giants put out there for WR’s, the Pats are ranked 31th in the pass D. Jacobs and “hopefully they play him” Scott will get the job done. Jake Ballard will have a huge game. I believe JPP will play and Prince will make his debut. Giants 31 Pats 27

    Hakeem Nicks, Wendy Nix, or Stevie Nicks it don’t matter because the Patriots can’t cover any of them with that pathetic secondary or the defensive backs coach Belichick brought in from The South Dakota School of Mines (I not making that up).

    Tip toe burglar strikes again

    We’re fine without each of them. Cruz, Mario, Ballard, Barden and Jernigan are enough to exploit them.

    Baas out and Boothe in at Center bothers me with Big Vince potentially wreaking havoc. Boothe did not play well the last time he was at center (vs. ARZ). He was sterling at RG vs. BUF.

    Not really worried at all. Jacobs doesn’t even have to have a GOOD game, 12-15 carries for 50-60 yards from him is enough.

    Ware and Scott will get about 10-12 carries between them. We weren’t going to run the ball more than 25 times anyway.

    they could start chuck norris it wouldnt matter tom isn’t going to lose 2 in a row

    I’m just waiting for a week to go by that I don’t have to read about another Giants injury. 59 games missed by starters so far this year. I thought Coughlin said he was going to eliminate the injuries that was the downfall of the Jim Fassell regime. Oh well, I really hope that Scott and Barden at least get a shot this week.

    2 of our best offense starters out.
    It’s not December yet so what is with the present to the patriots??

    nothing wrong with the sd school of mine
    Hard Rockers.

    At least giants fans will have an excuse for another second half collapse.

  14. damnyankee13 says: Nov 5, 2011 9:25 PM

    Umm, to all you pats fans, some of yall say we were lucky to beat yall in that SB, with that pass, but if our O line hadnt given Eli enouigh ti,e he wouldnt have gotton that pass off. some luck was involved, but it wasnt totally lucky. I am looking forwardto this game. I have read, that between the 2 QBs, it is expected that 700+ passing yards is expected. We shall see.

    Will se where he giants haters are at when the giants win 34-31 gmen all they way I can almost guarantee brady will be hurt after tomorrows game because he will get hit by the four aces 1 billion times. No joke

  16. Mr. Wright 212 says: Nov 5, 2011 9:53 PM

    There’s no “present” to the Patriots. Even the guys playing offense tomorrow can get off on them. As long as the front four does its job on defense, everything the patriots want to do will get derailed.

    So what will Eagles fans use as an excuse for another year without a Super Bowl?

    Win or lose this is gonna be a great game to watch.

  20. terrorhawk2 says: Nov 5, 2011 11:03 PM

    Don’t worry, Phil Simms will somehow get the job done. Wait, what year is it?

    Giants are the most overrated team in the nfl right behind the niners

  22. baldingerspinky says: Nov 6, 2011 6:21 AM

    No excuses from eagles fans. Congrats the giants were good four years ago. Big freaking deal. The eagles overlooked the giants this year. Won’t happen a second time. Giants fans are starting to sound like cowboys fans. While more relevant than a cowboys fan still as annoying. Eli is having the best year of his career and the giants still suck. Barely beating an 0-6 dolphin team mainly due to poor officiating doesnt make a case that your team is any better than last year.

    The secondary ain’t great…but the dirty little “secret” is that the LB corps is the weakest unit. There’s a reason Pitt went buck wild on the short passing game last week. The Pats have won SBs with an average secondary before like in 04 when Law and Poole were both out most of the year(granted they had Rodney, but the rest were JAGS). What they had then was a great bunch of LBs.
    I really don’t know what to think of their chances on this one. Brady said before last week that the Pitt game would tell them a lot about the team. Well they can’t like what it told them. I think this game will be pivotal either way. It will either start them trending upwards or downwards for the rest of the year.

    Giants rule out any kind of consistency.

    Everyone has been talking about the Redskins collapse after everyone got hurt in Week 6-7 and how they have been so terrible since.

    If the Redskins are supposed to be good with their starting LT, LG, WR, RB, and both TE’s hurt…then let’s see the NFC East-leading Giants pull this victory out with just about as many injuries as the Redskins have.

    Don’t be surprised if the Giants drop a few games here like the Redskins have been recently.

    Injuries decimate a team’s season.

    @philaeagles215;
    You have to be kidding me!…Giants the most overrated?..This coming from an Eagles fan…LOL

    That’s funny. Those sure sound like excuses to me.

    It was going to be an uphill battle with all the starters, it just became much more difficult!!

  29. jphoops says: Nov 6, 2011 11:29 AM

    Hey baldingerspinky how are is the dream team doing shofar. Don’t you remember who won earlier this year, that’s right the giants. Pats are going down g-men style.
