Giants Injury News: Brandon Jacobs, Justin Tuck, Chris Snee, Henry Hynoski Out Sunday

The New York Giants’ beleaguered running game did not get much help Friday when coach Tom Coughlin announced that running back Brandon Jacobs (knee), right guard Chris Snee (concussion) and fullback Henry Hynoski (neck burner) will not play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Defensive end Justin Tuck will also not play, missing his second consecutive game with neck and groin injuries. It will be the third time Tuck sits out this season.

Snee will likely be replaced in the lineup at right guard by journeyman Kevin Boothe, who started at center Sunday for the injured David Baas. With Hynoski out, tight end Bear Pascoe will assume fullback responsibilities. Pascoe played fullback most of last season after Madison Hedgecock was injured.

Danny Ware took some of Jacobs’ carries a week ago as the backup to Ahmad Bradshaw, but netted only three yards in four carries. There has been some speculation that rookie Da’Rel Scott, a seventh-round pick from the University of Maryland, might see his first real playing time Sunday against Buffalo.
