BEST OF MAXIM
Will Beatty absent from practice
At least one of Thursday's missing B's was back at practice on Friday. As expected, LB Michael Boley (hamstring) and RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) were not on the field. All signs point to both players missing Sunday's game, although Boley, in sweats and a hoodie, was watching the defensive unit ...

Giants linebacker Michael Boley said he is still “holding out hope” that he will recover from his hamstring injury in time to face the Eagles on Sunday. But that doesn’t seem likely , and that could mean that rookie Mark Herzlich sees his first action — and possibly his first start — on defense.

Kiwanuka is the elder statesman among a young group of Giants linebackers looking to make up for the loss of the injured Michael Boley
As the Eagles (3-6) limp into town down Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin, some may view this game as a gimmie.

Here are the Giants’ inactives for tonight’s game vs the Eagles:
RB Ahmad Bradshaw, FB Henry Hynoski, LB Michael Boley, DT Dwayne Hendricks, OL James Brewer; WR Jerrel Jernigan and OL Mitch Petrus.
Mark Herzlich will start at MLB and Jacquian Williams will start for Boley at the WILL LB position.
For Philadelphia, Vince Young starts at QB in place of Michael Vick and Riley Cooper...
