Ramses Barden Activated; Bradshaw, Nicks, Baas Won't Play

The New York Giants today activated wide receiver Ramses Barden from the Physically Unabel To Perform (PUP) list, filling the spt on the 53-man roster left when Justin Tryon was placed on Injured Reserve. Barden could make his long-awaited 2011 Sunday when face the New England Patriots in Foxboro. That is the good news.

The bad news is that offensive starters Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks and David Baas did not travel with the team and will not play in the game.

Barden, a third-year receiver, has not played since Nov. 14, 2010, when he fractured his ankle in a game against Dallas. He returned to practice after the bye two weeks ago. In his first two seasons, Barden played in nine games and had six catches for 80 yards.

Bradshaw, the team's leading rusher with 440 yards; Nicks, the top receiver with 38 catches; and Baas, the starting center, were downgraded to out after being listed as doubtful on the team's injury report yesterday. Bradshaw has a fractured bone in his foot, Nicks has a sore hamstring and Baas has a knee injury. All three players were hurt in last week's victory over Miami.

Brandon Jacobs is expected to start at running back for Bradshaw. Victor Cruz will likely fill in for Nicks, and Kevin Boothe will step in for Baas at center for the second time this season. Baas also missed the Seattle game on Oct. 9.
