The Giants' already-bleak situation at wide receiver just got worse for Sunday's matchup with the division rival Eagles: Mario Manningham, who suffered a concussion in last Monday night's win over the Rams, has been ruled out.

Earlier in the week, wide receiver Domenik Hixon was placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in the Monday night game.

New York will go into Philadelphia to face arguably the best secondary in the league without their Nos. 2 and 3 wideouts. Eli Manning's go-to target, Hakeem Nicks, will play, and he'll be joined by some combination of second-year player Victor Cruz, veteran slot receiver Brandon Stokely, former Redskins draft bust Devin Thomas, and just-signed Michael Clayton.

There was some speculation in recent days that the Giants might be interested in Randy Moss. General manager Jerry Reese admitted that "we investigate everything" when asked about the possibility of signing Moss, he added, "(Moss) hasn't been in our building so it would be unfair to make an evaluation of him. We don't really know him. He's a terrific receiver as we've seen from his time in the league. Our offense is predicated on reads, which is hard for some guys to pick up. But it's not something that a veteran like him would have trouble with."

Discussions of Moss aside, this Giants' current group of receivers will have their hands full. They're going up against cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha (the Eagles' high-priced free-agent acquisition), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (who came over in the trade that sent quarterback Kevin Kolb to Arizona) and Asante Samuel.

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora and rookie cornerback and first-round pick Prince Amukamara also didn't make the trip to Philly.

In other concussion-related news, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says he will be under center. "I feel great and ready to play," he said Friday. "Nothing feels different. I feel like I've worked myself back into good condition and playing shape and I'm ready to go."


Coming off a Monday night victory, the New York Giants prepare to take on NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Join Jason Horowitz and NFL.com's Pat Kirwan as they preview this upcoming matchup.

Does not matter, this team stinks.
Go fake some injuries at least they are better executed that the play in your book.
