The Bills aren’t the only team who will be down starters on Sunday against the Giants. New York will be missing a starting defensive end, their top slot receiver and could be without a couple of other starters this weekend.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, who already declared WR Victor Cruz out on Wednesday, will also be without starting DE Robert Ayers and starting DT Markus Kuhn. He could also be missing his starting left tackle Ereck Flowers for another week. If Flowers can’t play, LG Justin Pugh is expected to kick out to left tackle again this week.

Player Injury Wed. Thurs. Fri. Game Status

The New York Giants look like they could be shorthanded at a couple of positions on Sunday when they come to Buffalo.

Tom Coughlin’s team is looking short at the tight end position where only starter Larry Donnell is healthy. Both Jerome Cunningham and Daniel Fells haven’t practiced at all this week with knee and ankle injuries respectively.

A pair of starting defensive linemen in Robert Ayers and Markus Kuhn are also struggling this week. Both were limited Wednesday, but neither practiced Thursday.

Player Pos Injury Participation Wednesday Participation Thursday
Jerome Cunningham TE Knee DNP DNP
Daniel Fells TE Ankle DNP DNP
Robert Ayers DE Hamstring LP DNP
Victor Cruz WR Calf LP DNP
Markus Kuhn DT Knee LP DNP
Ereck Flowers T Ankle LP LP

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz suffered a setback in his attempted return from a calf injury Wednesday when he felt the calf grab on him again and was pulled from practice early. Starting DE Robert Ayers (hamstring) and starting LT Ereck Flowers (ankle) were both limited in Wednesday’s practice. Flowers did not dress last week.

Jacobs, Tuck, Snee out for G-men

Posted by Chris Brown on October 14, 2011 – 2:12 pm

The Giants will be without the services of three key starters on Sunday when they host the Bills.

Head coach Tom Coughlin declared RB Brandon Jacobs (knee), DL Justin Tuck (groin) and G Chris Snee (concussion) out for Sunday’s game.

All three of them had failed to practice the entire week so the decision came as no surprise. On New York’s defensive line, Jason Pierre-Paul will start in place of Tuck at LDE and the Giants haven’t lost much. Pierre-Paul leads the team in sacks with 6.5 and has 11.5 in his last 11 games.

At running back D.J. Ware will complement starter Ahmad Bradshaw. Taking the 265-pound Jacobs out of the mix is good news for the Bills knowing their two starters at outside linebacker are both unlikely to play with Chris Kelsay out and Shawne Merriman doubtful. That means Arthur Moats and fellow second-year man Danny Batten are likely to start and both weigh less than Jacobs.

On New York’s offensive line Snee will be replaced by Kevin Boothe, unless David Baas is unable to go at center. Baas (neck) is listed as questionable and has been limited in practice all week. If for some reason Baas can’t play, Boothe would step in at center and Jim Cordle would step in at guard.

Cordle is also the team’s backup long snapper as starting long snapper Zak DeOssie is questionable after suffering a concussion.

Starting FB Henry Hynoski is also out for Sunday’s game with a concussion.
