Super Bowl 2012: New York Giants Inactives

There were no surprises among the inactive players announced by the New York Giants for today’s Super Bowl XLVI meeting with the New England Patriots. That means that running back Ahmad Bradshaw, as expected, will be in the lineup for New York this evening.

The inactive players are as follows:

Ramses Barden (WR)
Da’Rel Scott (RB)
Mark Herzlich (LB)
Jim Cordle (OL)
Justin Trattou (DE)
Jimmy Kennedy (DT)
James Brewer (OL)

Herzlich, the cancer survivor from Boston College, has not played since suffering a severe ankle injury against the New Orleans Saints.

In case you do not understand the ‘inactive’ designation, here is how it works. NFL teams are allowed to carry 53 active players on their rosters. Only 46 of those are allowed to dress and play in the actual games, however. Thus, prior to each game teams have to designate seven players who will not see action in that day’s game.
