EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants starting center David Baas is a late scratch for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers because of headaches.
Baas was not on the team’s injury report all week. Kevin Boothe, who started last week at left guard, moves to center and Mitch Petrus is set to play left guard in his first career start. New York also lost tackle Stacy Andrews on Saturday night when he was hospitalized with embolisms in both lungs.
Defensive end Osi Umenyiora, receiver Mario Manningham and linebacker Mark Herzlich also are sidelined.
The Packers are without four starters, tackle Chad Clifton, guard Josh Sitton and linebackers A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop.
Returning the Giants lineup are halfback Ahmad Bradshaw and linebacker Michael Boley.
