No Bradshaw, Diehl or Hixon at Giants practice today

With only one full day of practice this week, the Giants were without three key players Tuesday.

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), right tackle David Diehl (knee) and wide receiver Domenik Hixon (concussion) were absent, making it doubtful they’ll be ready to go Thursday at the Panthers, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Diehl’s expected to miss a few more weeks with an MCL injury, and the short turnaround makes Hixon’s return a doubt. Asked to describe Bradshaw’s condition, and Giants coach Tom Coughlin said only “neck.”

Thanks, Tom.

Coughlin did say he expected wide receiver Hakeem Nicks to play this week, even though he was on the sidelines on an exercise bike Tuesday.

They did get cornerback Prince Amukamara (ankle) back to practice, which will help.

But without some key offensive parts, it’ll be tougher to get into a shootout with a Panthers team that showed last week it can score in a hurry.

    Not that big of a deal. Hixon is a so-so reciever. Bradshaw has looked very slow lately and just not the player he used to be, which cannot be blamed on that O-line as Andre Brown gained 71 yards and a TD + 2pt conversion behind that same O-Line, in just a couple quarters.

    also that O-Line looked better last year when Deihl was out and it looked better yesterday with him out. Deihl may be the weekeast link on the whole offense.

    Giants fans, remember the last game at the real Meadowlands? This outcome will be shockingly similar… Panthers win big!

    We have reliable back ups at all those positions so we should be fine! Big Blue!!

    Pretty sure they scored 28 second half points without those guys on sunday. I think they’ll be ok.

    careerender56: David Diehl played in every single game last year, as in most of his career with the G-men, he has only missed 4 games with them during a 10 year career. Last year he being moved around alot because off injuries on the O-line, he started at LG last year and was after the injury to Beatty moved to LT where he performed rather good.

    I admit that his performance at RT hasn’t been perfect so far, but he is an important player because he can play every position on the o-line.

    The Giants scored 24 points in the fourth quarter with all three guys already out of the game.
    Two WRs with 10 catches or more and over 175 yds. NY is the second rated offense and the top rated passing offense in the League.
    They scored 41 points against the same Tampa defense that held Carolina to 10.

    I’m more worried about the dismal pass rushing and the weak secondary. The Offense will still be able to put lots of points on the board; it’s keeping the points off the opponents side of the board they should be more worried ’bout.
