Defensive end Kenny Holmes (knee), tackle Luke Petitgout (biceps/foot) and tight end Jeremy Shockey (foot) are all probable. Holmes did not practice but is expected to work tomorrow. Petitgout took some plays off, and Shockey did more in practice than he has in recent weeks.
Defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin (ankle) is questionable, wide receiver Willie Ponder (hip) is doubtful and kicker Matt Bryant (hamstring) and cornerback Will Peterson (back) are out.
"Griff's ankle is better, but he's still questionable for this week," Fassel said.
Lucier played in Minnesota with a fever that spiked as high as 103 degrees. He was still weak Wednesday and was sent by the Giants to be examined by another doctor.
"That was one sick young man when we played that game," Fassel said. "He gutted it out. He was sick. He's better, but he's weak like anyone getting over a virus. He was out at practice, and he'll be in watching the practice tape."
Fassel said he will probably use the same offensive line that started against the Vikings: Luke Petitgout and Ian Allen at tackle, Lucier and David Diehl at guard and Chris Bober at center.
