Hakeem Nicks runs a few routes, still on target

It wasn’t much, and it wasn’t from Eli Manning, but Hakeem Nicks was just glad to be running a few routes and catching a pass again.

The Giants receiver ran a few patterns and caught balls from the team’s training staff Tuesday, the first time he’s done so in his comeback from a broken foot this spring.

“Yeah, definitely. I’m exciting about running some routes today and getting to see where I’m at,” Nicks said, via Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s going to be exciting for me just to see where I’m at.”

Nicks had been limited to straight-line running, before running in circles yesterday to see how the outside of his foot would respond. Asked whether he might leave training camp without having practiced, he replied: “We’ll see. If they choose to let me go out there and do some things next week as far as running routes on air with the quarterbacks and we’ll see how that goes. Right now, we’re just going to see how today goes and take it from there.”

The Giants would happily trade snaps in Albany for a healthy Nicks on Sept. 5 against the Cowboys, and as long as there are no setbacks, that seems to be a reasonable expectation.

    Hey there sport. You enjoy that 2-0 sweep against the world champs. We’ll enjoy hoisting the Lombardi trophy all season long.

    hulkhogan: As long as that translates into another Super Bowl run. Enjoy your Franchise QB project, that should be a distration from the yearly neck pain you Skins’ fans have from looking up at the other teams in the division.

    I think the Giants will gladly give 2 to the Skins every year, as long as they are Super Bowl champs!

    Why is every Giants fan’s comment the same?

    “Enjoy your sweep, we will enjoy the Lombardi trophy.”

    Good one.

    “Why is every Giants fan’s comment the same?”

    Because it’s the truth. The sweep is nothing. The Lombardi Trophy is everything.

    You remember the Lombardi Trophy, don’t you? That’s the thing the Cowboys haven’t sniffed in a long time, and probably won’t for the foreseeable future.

    @allascowboys

    Why are the Cowboys still playing Romo? Not like he’s winning you anything.
