Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, however, did fly to New England and is expected to play, barring a setback. First-round pick Prince Amukamara also traveled to New England. The cornerback could make his NFL debut on Sunday.
The Giants were concerned that Pierre-Paul had suffered a concussion after he collided with a teammate on Thursday. But since he made the trip, he is expected to play Sunday as long as his concussion symptoms have subsided.
With Nicks out, the team activated wideout Ramses Barden off of the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Barden could play third wideout for the Giants. Victor Cruz is expected to start alongside Mario Manningham.
Brandon Jacobs is expected to start for Bradshaw.
