Found November 03, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The New York Giants enter the weekend with several players listed as questionable, including running back Ahmad Bradshaw and safety Kenny Phillips, for their matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Others, including linebacker Chase Blackburn, have been ruled out for the contest, reports Alex Raskin of CBSSports.com. The Giants will replace Blackburn in their lineup with linebacker Mark Herzlich, who will be making his third start for the G-Men. But due to the hamstring injury he suffered in last Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys, Blackburn will be inactive against the Steelers this Sunday and Herzlich will be making the third start of his NFL career, coach Tom Coughlin told the media on Friday. Bradshaw has said that he expects to play tomorrow, while coach Tom Coughlin has already deemed Stevie Brown a starting safety even if Phillips is able to suit up. The team will use a three-safety rotation, including Phillips, Brown and Antrel Rolle, who’s considered probable to play. Others listed as probable to play tomorrow against the Steelers include center David Baas (ankle/elbow), defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (quad) and wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf).
