There was plenty of doubt about whether or not the New York Giants would have wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in the line up on Sunday afternoon, so the team’s fans and fantasy owners alike were keeping an eye out for the official inactives list.

When the list was released just over an hour before kickoff, Nicks was officially listed as inactive for the afternoon. ESPN’s Adam Schefter passed along the news.

Without Nicks in the line up, Rueben Randle is set to play a bigger role in the passing game.
