The New York Giants will try to end a two-game losing streak without their top tailback.
As expected, running back Ahmad Bradshaw officially has been scratched, due to a lingering foot problem. Bradshaw did not practice at all this week.
Also out are left tackle Will Beatty (eye/back) and defensive back Derrick Martin (hamstring).
Doubtful for the Giants is linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring). Receiver Mario Manningham (knee) and receiver Michael Clayton (knee) are questionable.
Several Giants are probable, which means there’s a virtual certainty they’ll play: tackle Kareem McKenzie (toe), defensive end Justin Tuck (ankle/shoulder), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee), and running back D.J. Ware (concussion).
The Giants visit the Saints on Monday night. A loss puts them a full game behind the Cowboys in the NFC East.
