The Giants will have defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul in the lineup as they go for their fourth-straight victory on Sunday afternoon.
Pierre-Paul was listed as questionable after missing two days of practice this week with a shoulder injury. Pierre-Paul said he wouldn’t play unless he was feeling confident that he could play the entire game, so he should be a big part of the plan to stop Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien.
The Packers’ plans to stop Eli Manning took a hit with cornerback Sam Shields landing on the inactive list. Shields was listed as probable after missing practice on Friday with a hamstring injury. Cornerback Casey Hayward is out with a hamstring injury as well and linebacker Nick Perry is back on the sideline after returning for last week’s game.
Green Bay will also be without right tackle Don Barclay, who is out with a knee injury. Marshall Newhouse will take his place in the lineup. Running back Peyton Hillis is inactive for the Giants. Brandon Jacobs is active and appears set to be the complement for Andre Brown in the backfield on Sunday.
