Ahmad Bradshaw, Prince Amukamara out Sunday

ookies David Wilson and Jayron Hosley are up this weekend for the New York Giants. The team on Friday officially ruled running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee/foot), cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and safeties Kenny Phillips (knee) and Tyler Sash (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

That means Wilson and Hosley will play key roles as the Giants (8-5) try to maintain their one-game NFC East at the Georgia Dome against the 11-2 Falcons.

Giants' coach Tom Coughlin said sidelining Bradshaw, who has played through a series of foot injuries over the years, was "the only wise move."

"It would have been a reach for him to be ready," Coughlin said. "With someone like that, his constitution, you have to give him every benefit of the doubt. I’m sure he’d be disappointed right now. He thinks come game day it’s all going to straighten out for him. In this case, it’s, medically, really the only wise move.

Wilson, of course, is coming off his franchise-record 327 yards of total offense Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Hosley has started four games, but struggled during the middle stretch of the season and his playing time has been reduced in recent weeks. Most of his playing time this season has come in the slot, but Hosley will be outside on Sunday.

"I’m a corner. I’ve played corner all my life. So I’m definitely comfortable out there. That’s where I made my name at corner. I’m not saying that I downplay the nickel position. I love playing nickel. Wherever I’m needed I’ll play, but at the end of the day I’m going to be playing corner," Hosley said.

Here is the complete injury report:

CB Prince Amukamara - Hamstring (DNP)
RB Ahmad Bradshaw - Knee/Foot (DNP)
S Kenny Phillips - Knee (DNP)
S Tyler Sash - Hamstring (DNP)

LB Michael Boley - Back (LP)

C David Baas - Shoulder (FP)
TE Travis Beckum - Knee (FP)
WR Hakeem Nicks - Knee (LP)
DE Jason Pierre-Paul - Back (FP)


Giants vs. Falcons: Keys to the game

Here are some of the key things to watch for Sunday when the New York Giants face the Atlanta Falcons in a critical game.


Giants' injury update: Amukamara, Bradshaw sit

Prince Amukamara played only seven games last season as a rookie after breaking his foot in training camp. This season he missed the first two games with a high ankle sprain.

Amukamara could be shelved again Sunday when the Giants face the 11-2 Atlanta Falcons. He missed his second straight practice on Thursday due to a hamstring injury suffered late in Sunday's 52-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints.

"I was trying to stay on a streak and just finish this season out healthy, but this is just a little minor setback. I'm glad it's nothing worse," Amukamara said Thursday.

He said he is "hopeful" of being able to play Sunday. The Giants certainly could use him with the Falcons featuring a pair of oustanding wide receivers in Roddy white (77 catches) and Julio Jones (63).

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee/foot) also did not practice and head coach Tom Coughlin is uncertain if the veteran running back -- who rarely practices, anyway -- will be able to play Sunday.

"He’s going to tell you that he can go, anytime. So, it’s between the medical people and Ahmad, in terms of how he feels. You have a little bit different aspect now. You have a knee and you have a foot as well," Coughlin said.

Here is the full injury report for Thursday:

Did Not Participate in Practice
CB Prince Amukamara (Hamstring)
LB Michael Boley (Back)
RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Knee/Foot)
S Kenny Phillips (Knee)
S Tyler Sash (Hamstring)

Limited Participation in Practice
WR Hakeem Nicks (Knee)
DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Back)


Ahmad Bradshaw sits out Giants practice

Ahmad Bradshaw will not be participating in practice on Wednesday due to a left knee sprain. His status for Sunday is in doubt.
