New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham, who had been doubtful for Saturday's game against the New York Jets with a knee injury, will be inactive.
Other Giants inactives for Saturday are tight end Jake Ballard (knee), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee), linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle), center Jim Cordle, defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy and offensive tackle James Brewer.
Bear Pascoe will start at tight end for the Giants.
The Jets' inactives are quarterback Kevin OConnell, wide receiver Eron Riley, cornerback Marquice Cole, safety Gerald Alexander, tackle Austin Howard, defensive lineman Ropati Pitoitua and defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis.
Saturday's meeting is crucial for both teams, who control their own destinies with two games remaining in the season. The Giants will win the NFC East if they finish the season with two consecutive wins, while winning out would give the Jets an AFC Wild Card berth.
