Given their absence from practice, it was no surprise when the Giants' official injury list came out Friday afternoon and RB Brandon Jacobs (knee, pictured above), OG Chris Snee (concussion), FB Henry Hynoski (neck) and DE Justin Tuck (groin/neck) all were listed as out of Sunday's game against Buffalo at MetLife Stadium. Rookie CB Prince Amukamara, who is recovering from a preseason foot injury, also was listed as out but might be ready to play after the Giants' upcoming bye week.

Listed as questionable were center David Baas (neck) and long snapper Zak DeOssie (concussion), but both practiced on a limited basis and appear likely to play. DeOssie said he's passed all the necessary concussion tests to this point, which is why he was allowed to practice, but he hasn't yet received clearance to play a game and might have to pass another test before the game.

Probables include DE Osi Umenyiora (knee) and LB Michael Boley (knee), both whom practiced on a limited basis.

The big question for Buffalo is whether nose tackle Kyle Williams (foot, limited practice) will play. He was one of three Bills listed as questionable along with S Da'Norris Searcy (ankle, LP) and LB Nick Barnett (ankle, LP). LB Shawn Merriman (shoulder/Achilles, did not practice) was listed as doubtful. Listed as out for the Bills are OT Demetrius Bell (shoulder, DNP), CB Aaron Williams (chest, DNP), LB Chris Kelsay (calf, DNP) and WR Donald Jones (ankle, DNP).

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Snee, who also is his son in law, has been making progress this week in trying to feel better and should benefit from the bye week following this game.
