The New York Giants will have running back Ahmad Bradshaw and linebacker Michael Boley back on the field.
However, starting center David Baas is a late scratch due to headaches and wide receiver Mario Manningham is inactive due to a knee injury as expected.
With backup offensive lineman Stacy Andrews hospitalized for pulmonary embolisms in both of his lungs, the Giants will keep David Diehl at left tackle and Kevin Boothe will move from left guard to center. Mitch Petrus will get his first start at left guard.
Defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle), linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle), rookie running back Da’Rel Scott and defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy are also inactive for the Giants.
