Ballard (knee) has caught 38 passes for 604 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games this season.

Umenyiora will miss his four straight game because of an ankle injury he sustained in Week 12 against New Orleans.

Herzlich is suffering from an ankle injury.

Wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee) is doubtful and running back D.J. Ware (knee) is questionable.
