The defense is looking especially thin after Thursday's practice. Linebacker Michael Boley (back), cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring), safeties Kenny Phillips (knee) and Tyler Sash (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.
The one player on offense who did not participate was running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who has a foot injury.
The Giants have one of their toughest tests of the season Sunday when they travel to play the Atlanta Falcons (11-2). After three losses in four games, the defending Super Bowl champions rebounded last week with a 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints.
The Giants have a tough stretch to finish the regular season. They'll travel to play Atlanta and then the Baltimore Ravens. They finish the season at home against division rival Philadelphia on Dec. 30.
