It has been reported from Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger that Hakeem Nicks took part in practice today. He worked during the individual drills, which is better than doing nothing at all. This does not mean that he is definitely going to play Sunday, but this is a big step towards that goal. Nicks has missed the last three games, but the Giants production on offense has remained the same. However, his ability will be needed against the better teams in the league, such as the 49rs, who the Giants play Sunday.
No decision will officially be made on Nicks until the staff sees how his knee reacts to the activity. If the swelling continues, you will not see Nicks participate Sunday, at least, I do not think you will. The Giants are going to be very cautious with any knee injuries, as they should be.
