Giants limp into Jets contest

Heading into the annual summer clash between the Giants and the Jets, Big Blue is going to be a little shorthanded. The following Giants are not expected to play due to injury:

Defensive end Lorenzo Bromell (PUP/knee), kicker Bill Gramatica (back), quarterback Jesse Palmer (abdominal strain), guards Barry Stokes (gluteal strain), Scott Peters (leg), Travis Scott (knee) and Rich Seubert (PUP/leg), tight end Jeremy Shockey (hamstring/foot), defensive end Keith Washington (eye) and safety Gibril Wilson (sprained neck).

Running back Curtis Keaton is questionable with a knee injury.

As a result, these are the changes in the starting lineup: Wayne Lucier will start at left guard for Stokes. Visanthe Shiancoe will start at tight end for Shockey. Osi Umenyiora will start at right defensive end for Washington. Kevin Lewis will start at middle linebacker for Nick Griesen.
