Injury report: Hixon, Douglas unlikely

August, 10, 2012
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Domenik Hixon is questionable and not expected to play tonight due to a hamstring injury.

The wide receiver is making his way back from a second torn ACL and the Giants will be cautious with him.

Also, wide receiver David Douglas is not expected to play with a quad injury. Douglas has impressed in camp thus far. Ramses Barden is expected to start for Hixon. Jerrel Jernigan, Rueben Randle, Dan DePalma, Isaiah Stanback and Brandon Collins will get more snaps.

Also, Keith Rivers is expected to start in place of Michael Boley (hamstring) at outside linebacker. Sean Locklear will start at left tackle for Will Beatty (back) and Shaun Rogers will start if Rocky Bernard (knee) does not play as expected.

Here's the list of Giants players not expected to play:

CB Terrell Thomas (knee)
WR Douglas (quad)
WR Hixon (hamstring)
RB Da'Rel Scott (thigh)
LB Jake Muasau (hamstring)
LB Boley (hamstring)
LB Jacquian Williams (hip)
LB Clint Sintim (knee)

DT Chris Canty (knee)
