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).
