Giants rule out Bradshaw, Diehl, Hixon, Ojomo at Carolina

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.

Giants cornerback Michael Coe is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, and receiver Hakeem Nicks is questionable with a foot injury.

  1. They’ll still win, newton will NEVER take the panthers to the top. Just like vick, he can’t stay in the pocket and scrambling qb’s don’t win SB’s.

  2. The difference between Newton and Vick is that Newton can actually throw the ball. Vick, while having a strong arm, has never been a very good passer.

    Steve Young disagree’s with this statement!!

    I don’t blame you for thinking Cam is just some run first QB. I mean he has not really been seen nationally yet because the Panthers have been bad for a couple years. However, his pocket presence is awesome. He stays in the pocket, sometimes too long, and only runs when forced to or if it’s a designed play. The haters should know a little more after tomorrow night. Looks like the Panthers are going to be without J Stewart and our starting RT, Bell. T Davis is also banged up. Those injuries are not good for us in any way.

  5. Don’t underestimate Newton. I have a lot of respect for him and the Giants are vulnerable to guys who can get to the outside because NY is horrible at containing the edges. This will be a very tough game. What I can’t understand is how did Carolina get held to 10 points against Tampa? If it wasn’t for Eli’s mistakes, and horrible officiating that allowed Tampa to hold NY’s WRs on every play, Giants could have put up 72 points on the Bucs.

  6. Cam can’t stay in the pocket?????

    That’s laughable… Like it was stated above, he’ll stay in the pocket and he’ll do just fine against a Giant secondary who hasn’t stopped the pass yet this season. You don’t throw for 4,000 yards by taking the snap and hauling ass. Stop comparing Newton to Vick. It’s obvious that Vick will never be able to process what’s going on with the defense in time to be an elite QB.

    All this is just talk of course. Should be a hell of a game tomorrow night.

  7. Lets see Bucs beat NC and Giants even giving away 21 points to make it interesting beat the Buc,s

    I think its time Cam met JPP JT and Osi.

    And NC defence has the chance to meet the #1 QB and the two #1 WR,s not making it up check the stats
    Eli leads in passing and Nicks and Cruz and dead even in yards.

    Going to be a long night in NC

    Giants D line was getting shaked by Romo just imagine what Newton will do to them lol


    How did Romo do against Seattle?!?!?!

    They had a horrible game plan against the Bucs. Gave up on the run game after one series. Cam threw for 300+ yards but had a ball bounce off a receivers hands for an INT and floated a pass to Smith that was intercepted. Dropped passes and poor o line play that game. The team just looked flat and unprepared.
