ATLANTA -- Rookies David Wilson and Jayron Hosley are officially in the Giants' starting lineup, as expected.

The two Virginia Tech draft picks will play pivotal roles against the Atlanta Falcons.

Wilson will start at running back in place of the injured Ahmad Bradshaw, who is out with a sprained knee. Hosley will start at cornerback in place of the injured Prince Amukamara, who is out with a hamstring injury.

Safety Kenny Phillips and safety Tyler Sash were the two other Giants listed as out for the game. Stevie Brown will continue to start opposite Antrel Rolle at safety.

In addition to Bradshaw, Prince, Sash and Phillips, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, tight end Adrien Robinson and defensive tackle Marvin Austin are inactive.
