Giants’ WR Hakeem Nicks Returns to Practice
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has practiced for the first time in two weeks.
Nicks worked out on a limited basis on Thursday. After the practice, he was uncertain whether he would be able to play against the 49ers (4-1) in San Francisco on Sunday.
The fourth-year receiver broke his right foot in minicamp in May and it has bothered him since the start of training camp. He developed swelling in his left knee after a win over Tampa Bay in the second game of the season and has missed the last three games.
While he wants to play, Nicks does not want to aggravate the injuries and possibly be sidelined much longer for the Giants (3-2).
