Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Sunday morning Giants-related news and notes.
Vick, Maclin downgraded to out
The Eagles ruled out QB Michael Vick (two broken ribs) and WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring/shoulder) Saturday. Both were listed as questionable Friday, but were not expected to play.
Neither Vick nor Maclin will travel with the Eagles. Vince Young is expected to start in place of Vick. Meanwhile, former Giant Steve Smith likely will see more playing time in place of Maclin. Smith had his best game as an Eagle last week (5 catches for 47 yards) against Arizona in place of the suspended DeSean Jackson.
Eagles CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) had already been ruled out of the game.

"Cost of doing business. I’ve been fined before for my hits on the quarterback. I led the league in quarterback hits two years ago. there’s no fear in being fined any more. I know what kind of player I am. I know I never do anything dirty or intentionally.’’
