As expected, the Giants are without running back Rashad Jennings for Monday night’s game in Minnesota.

Jennings had been listed as questionable for the game but prior reports said he wouldn’t play. Rookie cornerback Eli Apple, who’d been listed as doubtful, is inactive but cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will play after being listed as questionable.

The Giants are shorthanded at both safety and cornerback. Among the four players previously listed as out are safeties Darian Thompson and Nat Berhe. The Giants had also previously listed offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse and defensive tackle Robert Thomas as out.

Vikings first-round wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who has not yet made a reception, is active. Wide receiver Jarius Wright is not.

Also inactive for the Vikings are running back Ronnie Hillman, linebacker Kentrell Brothers, center Nick Easton, guard Willie Beavers, defensive tackle Sharif Floyd and tight end David Morgan.

    Everyone expects the Giants to lose, which means they won’t.

    Awwww… Applehead hurt hisself when he put that dirty hit on Matt Jones. Poor guy. You might want to think twice next time.

    As concerned as that depleted secondary makes me against the Vikings D the absence of a credible running threat concerns me more. They will be able to bring it knowing the Giants will have to throw the ball.

    The Vikings have beaten a not so good Titans team, a misfiring Packers team, and a surprisingly normal Carolina team. They will have their hands full with the well-balanced Giants team. They both have players missing.

    I hate to see teams have multiple guys hurt but the Vikings are in the same boat.

    The Vikings have beaten a bad Titans team, a bad Packers team, and an average Panthers team. Everyone on the schedule so far. Let’s see what the Giants can do.

    The Packers had a plan to run the ball at the edges of the Vikings while the idea was excellent, using a toss play which the Packers haven’t ran well in years is a poor choice to do it.

    The Giants on the other hand have ran at the edge with a hand off out of the shotgun and have had much more success.
