The New York Giants initial injury report released on Wednesday portrayed a team that would be heading into their toughest game of the season extremely short handed. Hakeem Nicks was not practicing, Martellus Bennet had knee issues, and Kenny Phillips was an unknown. However, today, the team released their final injury report before Big Blue heads out to San Francisco for their Week six bout with the 49ers.

Without further adieu, here's a look at who will and will not be making the trip out to California this weekend.

OUT: Rocky Bernard, Kenny Phillips, Andre Brown

QUESTIONABLE: Hakeem Nicks, Corey Webster, David Diehl

PROBABLE: Ramses Barden, Martellus Bennett, Chase Blackburn, Michael Boley, Jayron Hosley, Keith Rivers, Antrel Rolle

The Giants will not be at full strength againt the 49ers. Kenny Phillips is a major aspect of the defense and does a great job of making sure the team does not get beat over the top. Stevie Brown has made some plays in Phillips' absence, but the Giants will miss his presence in the middle of the field. With that, Andre Brown and Rocky Bernard have all made significant impacts at times throughout the season.

However, it appears as if Hakeem Nicks will be playing for the first time in three weeks. The Giants desperately need him to produce against one of the NFL's elite defenses. With that, Jayron Hosley, Keith Rivers and Ramses Barden will all return to the gridiron. 

The Giants will not be as banged up as we thought they would be this weekend. While this will undoubtedly be a hard fought matchup, Big Blue is healthier than they were a week ago and stands a chance to withstand San Francisco's smothering defense and smash mouth offense.
