Linebackers Jon Beason and J.T. Thomas III, along with tight end Larry Donnell, will join cornerback Prince Amukamara and wide receiver Victor Cruz as New York Giants who will be sidelined on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All five players were officially ruled out on Friday when the team released its injury report.
Beason (ankle/knee) and Thomas (ankle) also missed last week's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Donnell suffered a neck injury in last week's game. Amukamara (pectoral) has been sidelined for the past few weeks and Cruz (calf) has yet to play this season.
Giants who are questionable include wide receiver Rueben Randle (hamstring), linebacker Uani 'Unga (neck) and cornerback Leon McFadden (groin).
If 'Unga is unable to play the Giants will be left with Jasper Brinkley and James Morris at middle linebacker.
Jason Pierre-Paul is not listed on the injury report because he is not yet officially on the Giants' roster. The Giants have until 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to decide whether or not to activate Pierre-Paul for Sunday. If they add him a player will, of course, have to be dropped.
