Giants vs. Saints Injury Report

Kerry Collins will most probably miss his first start since the 1999 season due to an ankle injury suffered against the Redskins last week. He is doubtful and backup Jesse Palmer is expected to fill in for him.<BR><BR>

Big Blue also has several injuries to other key players on the offensive side of the ball. Wide receiver Tim Carter (concussion), offensive tackle Luke Petitgout (back), and tight end Jeremy Shockey (knee) are all doubtful.

The Saints, meanwhile, will go into Sunday night's game shorthanded as well as they are still fighting for a spot in the playoffs at 6-7. The offensive line is banged up as guard Kendyl Jacox (knee) is doubtful and the other guard, LeCharles Bentley (knee), is questionable. Two other starters in wide receiver Donte Stallworth (ankle) and defensive end Willie Whitehead (knee) are questionable as well.
