Hixon in for R.W.

ST. LOUIS - R.W. McQuarters' calf injury is going to prevent him from playing today in St. Louis.

Domenik Hixon will take over his duties as the Giants punt returner.

None of the other Giants inactives were surprising. K Lawrence Tynes (knee), CB Terrell Thomas (hamstring), RB Danny Ware, LB Jonathan Goff (back), OT Adam Koets, DE Dave Tollefson and WR Mario Manningham all didn't suit up at the Edward Jones Dome.

Goff is hoping to make his professional debut next week at home against the Bengals.
