Despite being listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game at San Diego with a knee ailment, Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is making the trip west with the club on Saturday, Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

One of the Giants’ reserve tailbacks, Jacobs did practice on Thursday or Friday. He missed the Giants’ Week 13 win at Washington with his knee ailment.

The 31-year-old Jacobs has rushed for 238 yards and four touchdowns on 58 carries for the Giants, who re-signed him after the season opener.

If Jacobs is out, Peyton Hillis would be the top backup to starter Andre Brown.
