The other inactives for the game are quarterback Dominique Davis, wide receiver Tim Toone, guard Phillipkeith Manley, guard Harland Gunn, defensive end Lawrence Sidbury and tight end Chase Coffman.

The Giants inactives are cornerback Prince Amukamara, safety Kenny Phillips, safety Tyler Sash, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, tight end Adrien Robinson and defensive tackle Marvin Austin.

Rookie Jayron Hosley will start at right cornerback for Amukamara. Rookie David Wilson will start at running back for Bradshaw.
