Giants' Hakeem Nicks misses practice


Hakeem Nicks was among the Giants players not participating in today’s practice. According to ESPN, he was found on the sideline, on a exercise bike.

It’s unclear what, if anything, would keep Nicks from practicing this week, though he did say he banged knees with Green Bay cornerback Tramon Williams during Sunday’s game. Williams was called for pass interference on that play, and Nicks sat out a few plays afterward, including the one on which his replacement, Louis Murphy, ran the wrong route on an interception. But Nicks returned to the game and said after that nothing was wrong.

However, Nicks wasn’t the only one on he Giants sidelines at practice suffering from some kind of injury.

Also missing practice Wednesday were fullback John Conner and cornerback Trumaine McBridewith hip flexors, Jacobs with a knee injury, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul with the same shoulder injury that caused him to miss two practices last week, and cornerback Terrell Thomas, who gets a day every week to rest his surgically repaired knee. Coughlin said cornerback Corey Webster, who has missed almost this whole season so far with groin and ankle problems, might do some individual work Wednesday.

The Giants take on the Dallas Cowboys Sunday afternoon, so there’s plenty of time for Nicks to recover by then. Make sure to stay updated with all the latest injury news at Fansided.
