As has been anticipated most of the week, middle linebacker Chase Blackburn will not play Sunday for the New York Giants against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That means Mark Herzlich will start and see his first extended action of the season.
Running back Ahmad Bradshaw did not practice Friday because of ongoing issues with his foot. He is listed as questionable, but most reports indicate he will play.
Bear Pascoe is listed as questionable. There has been some speculation that Travis Beckum, on the PUP list all season because of a knee injury, could be activated if Pascoe can't play. The Giants would have to make a roster move if Beckum were added.
