Injury report: Hosley, Rivers sidelined

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and linebacker Keith Rivers (hamstring) sat out Wednesday's practice as the Giants prepare to renew their rivalry with the Eagles.

RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) returned to practice and it appeared he had bigger shoulder pads on. Tom Coughlin said Bradshaw will return as the starting running back. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not practice on Wednesday as a scheduled day off and is expected to work on Thursday. Nicks is expected to play against Philadelphia.

CB Michael Coe (hamstring) was slated to go through a very controlled and limited practice according to Coughlin.

T David Diehl (knee) was on the bike with Nicks at the start of practice during the portion open to the media but was scheduled to do some work on the side, according to Coughlin.

WR Domenik Hixon (concussion), DE Adewale Ojomo (hamstring), S Antrel Rolle (knee) and CB Corey Webster (hand) all were on the practice field during the early portion.
