Hakeem Nicks could miss Week 12 against Dallas Cowboys


The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants are just hours away from kickoff and it appears the Giants may be without one of their top wide receivers.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Hakeem Nicks may miss the Week 12 contest as he deals with a strained abdominal muscle.

Schefter appeared on NFL Countdown and said he received a text message from somebody (assuming they’re with the Giants organization) informing him that Nicks was in some pain and his status for the Week 12 matchup ‘might not be looking good’.

Nicks was deemed questionable for the contest earlier this week due to an iffy groin, but had returned to practice and was expected to give it a go. There was no word of setback by Friday or an abdominal injury, so we’re not exactly sure what happened or why Nicks seems to be feeling worse than he did a few days back.

Regardless, if he can’t give it a go in the late afternoon tilt, Rueben Randle will likely slide into the starting role opposite Victor Cruz.
