The Giants will be without tight end Jake Ballard again on Sunday night, but it looks like they will be otherwise healthy as they battle the Cowboys for the NFC East title.

Wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham both practiced on Friday and are listed as probable for Sunday. Manningham missed the Jets win with a knee injury, but he has practiced all week and should be good to go for the Cowboys. Nicks didn’t practice before Friday because of a hamstring injury, but left feeling confident despite only taking limited reps.

I am confident. I am confident that I can get the job done and I will be full go,” Nicks said after practice.

Defensive end Osi Umenyiora is officially listed as questionable, but is expected to play after making an unexpected return from a sprained ankle earlier this week. Linebacker Mark Herzlich was the only other player listed as out on the Friday injury report.

  1. The fact of the matter is that the gints and cowtreads suck just as bad as the rest of the NFC Easy. Neither of them deserve to make the playoffs and the loser of the game will be in 3rd place in the NFC Easy. #1strdplayoffloss

    Sour Grapes, mad. Too bad the Eagles can’t be in there, huh? Then, of course, they would be a shoo-in for a Super Bowl run.

  3. Does not matter what your record is as long as you make the playoffs
    And guess what
    ELIs Coming

    Happy New Years

  4. I can’t hate I thought the Seahawks didn’t have a shot in hell last season against the Saints. It’s like winning your fantasy league with a sub .500 record still feels good to me.

    …and a great game to attend! Great football weather expected, 50’s for tailgating, 35 for game time. Fireworks, towels and a loud crowd are expected. Now if only the Defense would show up.
