When the New York Giants released their final injury report on Friday afternoon, it was no surprise that wide receiver Domenik Hixon (ankle) and linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee) were both listed as out. Neither were expected to suit up against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
"He was sick today, so we didn’t push him," coach Tom Coughlin said of Williams.
The good news was that defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee) practiced on Friday, and he was listed as probable. Joining him as probable are running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), center David Baas (ankle/elbow), guard Chris Snee (ankle) and safety Tyler Sash (ankle).
Finally, safety Kenny Phillips (knee) and linebacker Keith Rivers (calf/knee) are listed as questionable. However, Coughlin expects Phillips to play.
"Each day he's been a little better, and he's done a little better and a little more on the practice field, and hopefully he’ll feel he can make a strong contribution," Coughlin said.
Meanwhile, for the Packers, linebacker Clay Matthews, safety Charles Woodson, cornerback Sam Shields and linebacker Terrell Manning were all ruled out. Additionally, wide receiver Greg Jennings is listed as questionable.
