There were concerns that Hakeem Nicks would be out this Sunday. Well those concerns have been fulfilled. Hakeem Nicks will miss his third consecutive game with his knee injury, that still has not been fully explained. Yes we understand his knee has been swelling and it has bothered him, but there must be reasons for this swelling. That is a major concern and could be a problem going further. Hopefully, it is just water on the knee and the problem will resolve itself over time.
In Nicks’ place the rookie Reuben Randle will play. The majority of Randle’s plays have been on punt return. This man has a lot of talent and if he can pick up the complicated routes that Gilbride employs he will be an effective weapon for Eli Manning.
