Maclin active for Giants game

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jeremy Maclin was listed as active for for tonight's showdown with the Giants. The wide receiver was questionable with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, but has been cleared to play. DeSean Jackson is also set to go. He was held out last week after suffering a concussion the week before against the Redskins.

Kevin Curtis travelled with the team -- probably as a precaution -- but the wide receiver will not dress, as expected. Curtis has missed the last 11 games because of a knee injury.

Brian Westbrook is out for his fourth straight game. The running back practiced some this week but is still not ready to come back from a second concussion.

Defensive tackle Trevor Laws will not dress. It's the second time this season that the second round pick was not active. Guard Stacy Andrews, guard Mike McGlynn, running back P.J. Hill and cornerback Geoffrey Pope were also healthy scratches.

Kevin Kolb is the emergency third quarterback.

As for the weather, it's pretty much tapered off to a drizzle here at Giants Stadium. They're saying that it's going to stop raining by kickoff. Nevertheless, there are still several puddles on the turf about an hour and a half before an 8:20 p.m. start.
