The Giants are flying to Carolina today without four injured players.
The Giants have confirmed that running back Ahmad Bradshaw is out for Thursday night’s game against the Panthers with the neck injury he suffered on Sunday against the Buccaneers, and right tackle David Diehl is, as expected, out with the knee injury he suffered in that game. That may not be such bad news for the Giants, considering that their offense played better on Sunday after Bradshaw and Diehl went down. Backup running back Andre Brown carried 13 times for 71 yards and a touchdown and also caught two passes for 19 yards after Bradshaw got hurt, and he’ll play a big role in the Giants’ offense on Thursday night.
The good news for the Giants’ defense is that cornerback Prince Amukamara, who has missed the first two weeks with an ankle injury, is expected to make his 2012 debut on Thursday night. Amukamara is listed as probable, as are linebacker Keith Rivers and running back Da’Rel Scott.
