Danny Woodhead Injury Update: Running Back Leaves Patriots-Giants Game With Leg Injury

New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead was forced from Sunday's game in the fourth quarter against the New York Giants with a lower leg injury. Woodhead left the game having rushed seven times for 26 yards and caught three passes for 34 yards. Woodhead was able to walk off under his own power and there is no subsequent update at this point.

The Patriots rushing attack can be difficult to figure out at times for fantasy football purposes. BenJarvus Green-Ellis would appear to be the starter, but then last week we saw Kevin Faulk get more touches when the Patriots fell behind. Faulk's knee took a bit of a pounding and he was inactive this week against the Giants.

Danny Woodhead got more touches than we've seen in a while so who knows what that means moving forward depending on his leg injury. Of course, for a while Stevan Ridley was the guy getting the additional touches. It really is a conundrum trying to figure out who has what value in that backfield. Green-Ellis would still seem to be the guy, but you never know who might steal some carries from him,

VIDEO: Jake Ballard TD Gives Giants The Win

The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots today, in a rematch of the infamous Super Bowl game  that ended the Patriots' hopes for a completely undefeated season. This time, tight end Jake Ballard scored a last minute touchdown to give the Giants a 24-20 win over Tom Brady and the Patriots. Quarterback Eli Manning connected with Ballard on a diving catch from one yard out for the game winner. Check out the video of Ballard's touchdown right here.

That was Ballard's fourth catch of the game, and it put the Giants at a surprising 6-2 for a lead in the NFC East. 

Ballard finished the game with four catches for 67 yards and one touchdown. Eli Manning threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the game, and he was intercepted once. Running back Brandon Jacobs added a touchdown to the final tally. 

Tom Brady finished the game with 342 yards passing, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

VIDEO: Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski Connect For Go-Ahead Touchdown

For much of the game, the New England Patriots offense was held in check. But with time winding down in the fourth quarter, Tom Brady came back to life, engineering a drive for the go-ahead touchdown with under two minutes to go. It's almost as if we should've seen this coming.

At the time, the Patriots trailed the New York Giants, 17-13. Brady and the the Pats were facing fourth and eight in the red zone, and a failed conversion would've dashed their hopes.

But this happened.

Brady found a wide-open Rob Gronkowski for the score, and suddenly the Patriots had the lead.

Wes Welker Status Update: Patriots WR Will Play With Neck Injury

New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker is listed as questionable with a neck injury heading into the match-up with the New York Giants. Welker missed practice on Wednesday and was limited on both Thursday and Friday, but is expected to play in the game. If Welker is on your roster, he should be in your starting line up and he's averaging well over 100 yards per game on the season.

If for some reason Wes Welker is just limited in the game or doesn't play, that means more looks will go the way of tight end Rob Gronkowski, especially in the redzone. Welker is expected to play however, and he leads the team in receiving yards, touchdowns, and targets by a large margin.

Aaron Hernandez Status Update: Patriots TE Questionable

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is officially listed as questionable on the Patriots injury report, but he is expected to play against the New York Giants. Hernandez was limited all week in Patriots practice with his knee, which has kept him questionable for a few weeks, but he has continued to play each week.  His overall numbers are down in 2011, but even with his knee injury he's still a threat in the redzone with 4 touchdowns already this season.

If Hernandez is out or limited, expect Rob Gronkowski to get even more looks than he already gets, especially in the redzone. Gronkowski is a huge target and a mismatch in the redzone, just like Aaron Hernandez. The Patriots like to have both on the field.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis Status Update: Questionable, Should Play

New England Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is listed as questionable for the game against the New England Patriots. Green-Ellis, despite being questionable, is expected to play. He has been listed as questionable three weeks in a row and each week has played and gotten plenty of looks especially on the goal line.

If Green-Ellis somehow doesn't play or is limited, expect Kevin Faulk to get the majority of the touches out of the backfield. Faulk led the Patriots in touches out of the backfield last week. Green-Ellis should still get the goal line chances however, as he has 5 rushing touchdowns on the season and is typically the go-to man. With Faulk finally healthy however, expect the touches to be spread around.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Giants RB Out Vs. Patriots

The New York Giants will be without running back Ahmad Bradshaw against the New England Patriots with a foot injury. The Giants offense is already hampered without Hakeem Nicks in the line up, so losing Bradshaw is huge. It's likely the Giants will focus on rushing the football on the Patriots defense.

With Bradshaw out, expect running back Brandon Jacobs to get the lion's share of the carries. The two backs split time as is, but Bradshaw should get the majority of the touches out of the backfield. It's possible D.J. Ware and Da'Rel Scott will get some looks, but Bradshaw will be the go to guy for the game. Jacobs has been asking for more touches, so this will be an audition game for him, so to speak.

Hakeem Nicks Status Update: Giants WR Out Vs. Patriots

The New York Giants will be without wide receiver Hakeem Nicks against the New England Patriots, dealing with a hamstring injury. Nicks is a big loss for a Giants offense that will be missing their starting center and running back Ahmad Bradshaw. Nicks has nearly 600 receiving yards this year and would likely have a field day against the Patriots awful pass defense.

Without Hicks in the line-up, expect Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham to get a lot of looks their direction. Cruz has finally translated his preseasons success to the regular season. Manningham on the other hand has been hot and cold this season. If you're looking for a HIcks replacement, Victor Cruz is your best bet this week.
