Big Blue faces battered Patriots squad

The Giants have just two players on their injury report for the game. K Matt Bryant, of course, is out. And defensive tackle William Joseph is questionable with a foot injury. "I think he'll make the game," Jim Fassel said.<BR><BR>

New England, however, has 14 players on its injury report, including 13 who are questionable or worse. Linebacker Ted Johnson (foot) and defensive tackle Ted Washington (leg) are out. Tackle Adrian Klemm (ankle) and linebacker Mike Vrabel (arm) are doubtful. Those listed as questionable include fullback Fred McCrary (knee), wide receiver Deion Branch (ankle), running back Kevin Faulk (leg), wide receiver David Givens (chest), tight end Daniel Graham (shoulder), cornerback Ty Law (ankle), linebacker Willie McGinest (neck), wide receiver David Patten (knee), and running back Antowain Smith (shoulder). Quarterback Tom Brady (arm) is listed as probable.

Fassel admitted the large amount of questionable players makes it difficult to gameplan heading into Sunday's matchup.
