New York will be without three key offensive players tomorrow when it plays the Patriots.

Tonight the team announced that leading rusher Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), leading receiver Hakeem Nicks (hamstring) and starting center David Baas (knee) did not make the trip to New England and will not play.

However, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who experienced concussion-like symptoms after a helmet-to-helmet collision with a teammate in practice on Thursday, did make the trip, a sign he could play.

Also, the Giants activated receiver Ramses Barden to the 53-man roster from the PUP list. Though he is 6-foot-6, Barden excels as a slot receiver.
