    GIANTS' TE JAKE BALLARD QUESTIONABLE WITH KNEE INJURY, BAAS SICK

    GIANTS' TE JAKE BALLARD QUESTIONABLE WITH KNEE INJURY, BAAS SICK

    "New York running backAhmad Bradshawreturned
    to practice Friday, but the Giants unexpectedly were short two other
    players on offense during their final practice before departing for
    Sunday's NFC Championship Gameagainst theSan Francisco 49ers.



    Giants tight endJake Ballardand centerDavid Baasdid not participate during the portion of Friday's practice that members of the media could observe. Ballard eventually was listed as questionableafter it was revealed a medical procedure had been performed on his knee.



    Coach
    Tom Coughlin told reporters following practice about the procedure.
    Ballard's sore knee sidelined him for the final two games of the regular
    season.Ballard did not undergo surgery, Coughlin said via NFL Network's Albert Breer, but he did experience some swelling.



    Baas was listed as probable and apparentlycaught the same stomach bugthat caused quarterbackEli Manningtomiss part of Wednesday's practice.
    Baas has not appeared on the Giants' injury report since healing from a
    neck injury that bothered him late in the season. Baas' most recent
    injury listing came before the Giants' Week 16 win over theNew York Jets,according to The Star-Ledger.



    Bradshaw
    has consistently missed Wednesday and Thursday practices since
    returning from a mid-season foot injury, but tends to get back on the
    field by Friday."

    maybe Ballard just having his knee drained. I would think any other "surgery" type procedure would have him out for Sunday.

    Both will play. Was just posted on twitter that Ballard had a minor procedure and is feeling better then he did last week when he played vs the pack. Baas has the stomach bug but should be fine by Sunday. Even with no Baas, I wouldn't hate seeing Petrus in there. Ballard will go, Baas I'd say 95%.
    Because he's got no knees and I know how to type.

    I hope the bug doesn't spread to anyone else.

    Ballard with his knee injury is even slower than usual but really he doesnt need to be fast. He just needs to get out, be big and catch the ball when it is thrown to him. We have the skill at wideout so that he doesnt need to have that downfield threat.

    Well let's not chance it and put Petrus back there. We ran better anyway.
