Brandon Jacobs will not play vs. Cowboys

The New York Giants have officially ruled out Brandon Jacobs playing against the Dallas Cowboys this week.

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has been declared out of the Giants game Sunday night in Dallas.

Tom Coughlin made that announcement moments ago after Jacobs missed his third straight practice with an injured left knee.

“We just didn’t feel like hed be ready to play,” Coughlin said.

Derrick Ward will start in place of Jacobs. Asked if that meant Ahmad Bradshaw would get a little more work than usual, Coughlin said “Well see how the game goes.”

LB Jonathan Goff (hamstring) has also been ruled out and DT Fred Robbins (shoulder) will be listed as “questionable”.

The Cowboys’ defense has played better of late, but they’re still just average at best against the run. I wouldn’t trust Ward and Bradshaw to light up the fantasy scoreboard this week, although neither would necessarily be a bad start.
