Ballard, Baas are active, will play

SAN FRANCISCO -- The New York Giants are at full strength, as tight end Jake Ballard and center David Baas are active and will play.

The Giants inactives are wide receiver Ramses Barden, running back Da'Rel Scott, linebacker Mark Herzlich, center Jim Cordle, defensive end Justin Trattou, defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy and offensive lineman James Brewer.

Ballard had what head coach Tom Coughlin described as a "procedure" done to his knee last week. A source said he had an injection of medication.

Baas had a stomach bug on Friday. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks rolled an ankle in practice last week, but he is going to play too.
