EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants' inactive list for the game against Cleveland is filled with starters and key contributors.

Tackle David Diehl (knee) and linebacker Keith Rivers (hamstring), who were listed as doubtful, are inactive for the game. They join wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee/foot), wide receiver Ramses Barden (concussion), safety Kenny Phillips (knee), cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (quadriceps) on the inactive list.

Rookie Markus Kuhn will replace Bernard at defensive tackle and Marvin Austin could see some snaps as well. Domenik Hixon will start in place of Nicks and Rueben Randle should move up to be the third receiver.

Guard Chris Snee, safety Antrel Rolle, linebacker Michael Boley and cornerback Corey Webster were all listed as questionable but they will play today.
