Coach Tom Coughlin said Friday that Nicks will be a game-time decision. He’s listed on the team’s official injury report as questionable, but Nicks sounded very positive about his chances of playing on Sunday by saying that his injured hamstring passed every test.
Wide receiver/kick returner Jerrel Jernigan was also ruled out for the game with a hip injury. That should mean rookie Da’Rel Scott will handle kickoff return duties against the 49ers. Center David Baas and cornerback Prince Amukamara, who is waiting to make his NFL debut, were both listed as questionable.
