No Bradshaw, Nicks, Baas for Giants

The Giants announced today that running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), receiver Hakeem Nicks (hamstring) and center David Baas (knee) will miss Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Bradshaw is the team's leading rusher, with 440 yards on 111 carries and five touchdowns. This likely means that Brandon Jacobs, a bigger back at 6-foot-4, 264 pounds, will move into a leading role.

Nicks is the team's leading receiver, having totaled 38 receptions for 575 yards and three touchdowns. The Giants have activated receiver Ramses Barden -- a third-year player out of Cal-Poly -- off the physically unable to perform list.

Baas, who was signed to a lucrative free-agent contract this offseason after playing the first six years of his career with the 49ers, is the team's starting center.
