The Giants ruled RB Ahmad Bradshaw, OT David Diehl and WR Domenik Hixon out for Thursday’s game against the Panthers.

CB Michael Coe and WR Hakeem Nicks are questionable, and CB Prince Amukamara, LB Keith Rivers and RB Da’Rel Scott are probable.

Bradshaw injured his neck in Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers and Diehl suffered an MCL injury. RB Andre Brown rushed for 71 yards in Bradshaw’s absence and will share the load with rookie RB David Wilson. Sean Locklear moved to right tackle in place of Diehl and Will Beatty played left tackle.

Hixon has four catches for 67 yards this season.

For the Panthers, RB Jonathan Stewart and LB Thomas Davis are questionable and head coach Ron Rivera said they will be game-time decisions. ORT Byron Bell is also a game-time decision.

Stewart, who missed the opener, had 51 yards rushing and a 17-yard receiving touchdown in Week Two.
