The Giants have ruled four of their injured players out for tomorrow night’s game in Carolina.

Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), David Diehl (knee), Domenik Hixon (concussion) and Adewale Ojomo (hamstring) will not make the trip.

Someone who will make the trip if Hakeem Nicks, although he and cornerback Michael Coe are listed as questionable.

Prince Amukamara seems ready to make his 2012 debut after an ankle sprain and is listed as probable. Keith Rivers (hamstring) who missed the Bucs game is listed as probable too, along with Da’Rel Scott (knee).

In terms of the replacements for the players listed as out, expect the Giants to go with the offensive line alignment that they finished the game with on Sunday: Sean Locklear at right tackle and Will Beatty at left tackle. Also, Andre Brown will likely get the start for the Giants at running back, but Tom Coughlin has been hedging on that a bit and has mentioned several times that David Wilson will get touches.

No one will take the place of Ojomo. Who possibly could?
