Victor Cruz won't be the only member of the New York Giants who will be out of the lineup due to injury on Sunday vs. the Buffalo Bills. Defensive end Robert Ayers (hamstring), defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee) and tight end Jerome Cunningham (knee) will be out of action again. Tight end Daniel Fells and offensive tackle Ereck Flowers, both listed as limited in practice on Friday, are considered questionable.
Running back Orleans Darkwa (knee), defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa (foot) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (concussion) are all probable.
For the Bills, running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring), wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs), guard John Miller (groin) and safety Aaron Williams (neck) are all out.
