Just when you think the injury news can't get any worse … it does. The New York Giants released their final injury report for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, and it wasn't pretty. In addition to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee/foot), who was ruled out on Thursday, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (hip), cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring), wide receiver Ramses Barden (concussion) and safety Kenny Phillips (knee) have all been officially ruled out.

 

The hemorrhaging doesn't stop there. Oh no. Offensive tackle David Diehl (knee) and linebacker Keith Rivers (hamstring) are both listed as doubtful and unlikely to play.

Had enough yet? Too bad. There's more.

Cornerback Corey Webster (hamstring/hand), guard Chris Snee (hip) and safety Antrel Rolle (knee) are all listed as questionable and will likely be game-time decisions.

If there's any good news to be had, it's that cornerback Michael Coe (hamstring) and center David Baas (hand) are probable.

With Bernard out, rookie Markus Kuhn and second-year player Marvin Austin become extremely important to the Giants' interior defensive line. Meanwhile, rookie Rueben Randle will also be relied on to step up at wide receiver, while Mitch Petrus may get the start for Snee if he's unable to play on Sunday.

With what will be seven injury-related inactives, it means rookie tight end Adrien Robinson will be active for the first time this season and that defensive end Adewale Ojomo, assuming he doesn't get released to make room for safety Tyler Sash, will also be active for the first time in his young career.
