The Giants will be without their top two running backs tonight against the Vikings.

Although Rashad Jennings is officially listed as questionable, ESPN reports that he has been ruled out with a thumb injury.

Giants running back Shane Vereen was placed on injured reserve last week with a triceps injury. That leaves Orleans Darkwa as the top running back tonight. Bobby Rainey will back Darkwa up.

Darkwa has 11 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown through three games this season. Rainey has yet to carry the ball this year.

    It ain’t the RBs us Vikings fans are worried about — its the Giants’ WRs.

    It is the quick 3 step drop and throw that will hurt the Vikings, not the running backs. If the ball comes out quick before the pass rush can get there, and the receivers are ready to catch a timing pass, this could be a better game than expected. I think the DT’s for the vikings need to get their arms up.

    The NFL is so unpredictable, the Giants know the Vikings will focus on stopping the pass, I wouldn’t be surprised if they come out running. Their defense is much improved and going against the 31st ranked offense. Why play into the Vikings hands and throw, which can result in turnovers. Suck them in with the run and take the occasional deep ball shot. If the Vikes defense has issues with anything, it is stopping the power rushing attack. I’d force the Vikings offense to out score them, but that’s just me, I hope they come out throwing.

    He picked a good game to miss. 31-13 Vikings! SKOL!

    The Vikings are good but there are tiers in this league. If both teams play top quality ball, the Giants win hands down. Minnesota Vikings are not in the same class as the NY Giants. Theres levels to this S@?. And after Carolina got whipped by the Falcons, Minn win against them don’t seam that expressive.

    The Vikes D is not unbeatable. If the Giants can remain balanced and keep 3rd down manageable; the Vikes D is beatable. If the Giants fall behind and/or the running game struggles 1st and 2nd down… It will be a bloodbath.

    @thisistheonlygame I totally agree. The Giants need to utilize their weapons and they will be fine.
