Even though neither team practiced today, the Patriots and Giants were obligated to issue an injury report, with players' projected availability as if they had practiced. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was the only Patriot who would not have been able to take the field, because of the left ankle injury he suffered against the Ravens. The Giants said they would have been without three players: running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), receiver Hakeem Nicks (shoulder), and safety Tyler Sash (concussion).

The Patriots projected 12 players under limited participation: receivers Deion Branch (knee) and Wes Welker (knee); offensive linemen Marcus Cannon (ankle), Logan Mankins (knee), and Sebastian Vollmer (foot/back); defensive backs Patrick Chung (knee) and James Ihedigbo (shoulder); linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb), Tracy White (abdomen), Brandon Spikes (knee), and Rob Ninkovich (hip); and defensive lineman Kyle Love (ankle).

The Giants also included defensive end Osi Uminyiora (ankle/knee) under limited participation.

Both teams return to the practice field tomorrow.
