The New York Giants will likely have their full arsenal of wide receivers this weekend when they take on the Washington Redskins as Hakeem Nicks is expected to return to the lineup.
Nicks missed the Giants’ Week 12 matchup as head coach Tom Coughlin wouldn’t allow him to play given the missed practice time from an abdominal injury, but Nicks has partaken in practice all week and says he feels ‘real good‘:
“I feel good, man. I feel real good and I’m going to leave it at that,” Nicks said after he took part in a full practice at the Giants’ facility in East Rutherford.
Asked to gauge his optimism for playing on Sunday, Nicks — who is in his contract year and has yet to score a touchdown this season — sounded a bit uncertain.
“Um, you know I practiced all week,” Nicks said. “I think I showed them enough this week in practice. So I think everything will be good to go.”
Nicks said he expected to play against Dallas in Week 12 though was informed just hours before the game he would not play.
The talented receiver has struggled this season, hauling in just over 60 yards per game and is yet to catch a touchdown.
