Giants RB Bradshaw, WR Nicks out for Sunday

The New York Giants will be without running back Ahmad Bradshaw and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday's road game against the New England Patriots.

Bradshaw has a cracked bone in his foot, while Nicks is sidelined due to a hamstring injury.

Bradshaw, the team's leading rusher with 440 yards and five touchdowns, has been held out of practice since suffering the injury during last Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Brandon Jacobs is expected to burden most of the load at running back Sunday, while Victor Cruz will probably fill in for Nicks. Center David Baas (knee) is expected to be replaced by Kevin Boothe.

The Giants elevated wide receiver Ramses Barden to the active roster Saturday.
