Both leading rusher Ahmad Bradshaw and leading receiver Hakeem Nicks will miss practice today when the Giants begin preparing for their game Sunday against the Patriots in New England. Both teams are 5-2.

Bradshaw has what Coach Tom Coughlin said is a "swollen and sore" foot, which he's had since the team's victory last week over Miami.

Nicks suffered a hamstring injury in that game.

"It's going to be day-to-day," Coughlin said of Nicks. "He tells me he's better and says all the right things. But he's not going to work today."

With Nicks' status uncertain, wide receiver Ramses Barden will get more work. He is still on the Reserve/PUP list.

"He's going to get pushed a little harder this week," Coughlin said. "He practiced probably 50 percent of the time last week and we'll see if he can continue, along with (cornerback) Prince (Amukamara). Prince will get a little bit more this week, too."

Center David Baas (knee) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee/shoulder) will also sit out.

"All I know is he had a sore shoulder, but he seems to think that it will be manageable," Coughlin said of Umenyiora. "He's not working today, but that's normal. He normally has Wednesday (off). Last week, he did work on Wednesday – and Thursday as well, and Friday."

Defensive end Justin Tuck, who played Sunday after missing three games with neck and groin injuries, is sore but will practice.

Linebacker Michael Boley (knee), offensive lineman Stacy Andrews (back) and fullback Henry Hynoski (neck) are also on the preliminary injury report.
