Giants-Saints inactives: Nicks in, Phillips out

Safety Kenny Phillips (knee) will not play today for the New York Giants against the New Orleans Saints. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, however, will play today. Also, linebacker Jacquian Williams -- who has not played since Week 6 -- will be in uniform today for the Giants as they try to hang onto first place in the NFC East.

Phillips played for the past two weeks after missing six games, but his troublesome knee will keep him sidelined. That means Stevie Brown will start at safety. Without Phillips and Sash the Giants are unlikely to employ much of their three-safety package. Williams, a solid cover linebacker, could play significant snaps if his knee will allow.

Complete inactives for both teams are listed below.


TE Travis Beckum
S Tyler Sash
S Kenny Phillips
RB Ryan Torain
DE Adewale Ojomo
TE Adrien Robinson
DT Marvin Austin


T Charles Brown
CB Corey White
RB Chris Ivory
LB Scott Shanle
DT Tyrunn Walker
TE Michael Higgins
DE Turk McBride

Giants favored by 4.5 points against Saints

The New York Giants are favorites in Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints by 4.5 points with the over/under at 53 points. What are the recent betting trends for the Giants?


Giants' safety Tyler Sash has hamstring injury

Safety Tyler Sash, who suffered a pulled hamstring Monday night against the Washington Redskins, is the most serious addition to the New York Giants' injury report for Wednesday as they begin preparations for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Two other additions to the list are linebackers Michael Boley (shoulder) and Chase Blackburn (ankle).

Also included are running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (back), safety Kenny Phillips (knee), wide receiver Domenik Hixon (ankle), linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee) and tight end Travis Beckum (knee).

Sean Locklear, the offensive tackle who will be placed on injured reserve with a season-ending knee injury, is not included on the report. A roster move involving Locklear and a replacement has not yet been announced. Last week the Giants did waive offensive lineman Selvish Capers.

With Sash now injured and Phillips having been limited against Washington by his troublesome knee the Giants could be short-handed at the safety position against Drew Brees and the high-powered New Orleans Saints' passing attack.
