East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) – New York Giants running back Brandon
Jacobs is expected to miss a third straight game due to persistent injuries to
his hamstring and knee.

The Giants have listed Jacobs, who rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns at
Chicago in Week 6 prior to being sidelined, as doubtful for Sunday’s matchup
against the Oakland Raiders.

New York will likely use a combination of Peyton Hillis and Andre Brown, who
was activated from the short-term injured reserve list Thursday. Early-season
starter David Wilson (neck) was officially placed on IR Thursday to make room
for Brown, now recovered from a fractured fibula sustained during the
preseason.

On the defensive side, cornerback Corey Webster has been ruled out for New
York’s post-bye week clash with groin and ankle injuries. The veteran has
participated in just four of the Giants’ nine games this season, having
previously been sidelined with a hip flexor strain.

Defensive tackle Shaun Rogers (knee), moved to IR along with Wilson on
Thursday, has been declared out as well.

Wide receiver Victor Cruz is probable to face the Raiders after missing some
practice time this week with a stiff neck. Cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee)
and tight end Adrien Robinson (foot) are also expected to play.
