Giants likely minus 2 key players
Ballard was expected to miss at least one game with an injury to his posterior cruciate ligament. Manningham said Wednesday he will play against the Jets, but he did not practice this week, and coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday that Manningham experienced swelling in his knee. The Giants say he will be a game-time decision.
If Manningham is unable to play, Victor Cruz will see more of cornerback Antonio Cromartie and perhaps even some of Darrelle Revis. When Manningham is available, Cruz plays some in the slot in three-receiver sets.
Running back D.J. Ware (knee) is listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis.
