Bradshaw, Nicks, and Baas ruled out; Barden activated

The Giants announced that center David Baas, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and running back Ahmad Bradshaw did not make the trip and have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against in New England.

Baas (knee), Hicks (hamstring) and Bradshaw (foot) had been listed as “Doubtful” on Friday’s injury report. Kevin Boothe is expected to start at center for Baas, with Brandon Jacobs getting the majority of the carries for the injured Bradshaw.

Bradshaw leads the Giants with 440 yards and five touchdowns, while Nicks has a team-high 38 receptions for 575 yards.

The Giants also activated wide receiver Ramses Barden off the physically-unable-to-perform list. The Giants had a spot open on their roster to add Barden.

A 2009 third-round pick out of Cal Poly, the 6-foot-6, 235-pound Barden has six receptions for 80 yards in his nine-game career. Barden is coming off an ankle injury that ended his 2010 season.

    I swear I am going to lose it if I see/hear another Giants fan or blogger write the word “Hicks” one more time! He’s been on the team for 3 years now! Get it right!

    OK Ramses- show us what you’ve got.

    I am hoping for a good showing from Ramses. That 6’7″ frame should be a nice target for Eli in the red zone. I want to see a big game from Victor Cruz for my fantasy teams! I think the giants will be fine without Nicks for the week.

    • Jason C. says:

      My one concern is that last week Cruz seemed to improve by leaps and bounds working out of the slot, and now he moves back to the outside is Nicks’ absence. Unless they try some new looks with guys like Barden and Jernigan (who came in for a couple plays last week), this could be detrimental to his progression.

    Barden is going to be rusty, wont be that effective. Jernigan should get a chance at getting some offensive playing time. If he can get his hands on the ball he has the ability to get some yardage after the catch. Also, it is overlooked because everyone throws on the pats, but Giants should make an effort to run the ball first half. Keep brady off the field with long drives and if they have success, in the second half downfield will be wide open.
