The New York Giants announced running back Ahmad Bradshaw and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not travel with the team and will not play Sunday against New England.
It was widely expected that the two wouldn't play. Brandon Jacobs will be the main man in the Giants backfield, and Mario Manningham and Victor Cruz will see extra targets with Nicks out. All are worthy of starts this weekend. Tight end Jake Ballard could also see more passes sent in his direction, and has the potential to be a solid lower-tier TE1.
