Three New York Giants have been ruled out of Saturday's tilt against the New York Jets.
Tight end Jake Ballard (knee), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee) and linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle) will all miss Saturday's game, which is crucial to the Giants' playoff chances.
Wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee) is doubtful for the game, running back D.J. Ware (knee) is questionable and a host of players -- center David Baas (neck), tight end Travis Beckum (chest), wide receiver Devin Thomas (neck), tight end Bear Pascoe (ribs), safety Derrick Martin (back) and running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) -- are all considered probable.
Coach Tom Coughlin said Manningham will be a game-time decision. The receiver had swelling in his knee on Thursday.
Bradshaw has said that he expects to play.
