Hakeem Nicks coming off PUP list

Hakeem Nicks AP

The Giants spent last August watching key players leave practice with injuries, but they’re experiencing the opposite this time around.

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, out since breaking a bone in his foot during spring workouts, is coming off the physically-unable-to-perform list. The team announced Monday that Nicks has passed his physical, giving him the go-ahead to start practicing with the team. The team originally said that Nicks would take about three months to recover from his injury, a prognosis that Nicks though was too conservative but one that ultimately went the Giants’ way as Friday will mark 12 weeks from the date Nicks hurt himself.

You’d expect the Giants will ease Nicks back into the flow, something made easier by the fact that he must wear only shells during the next three padded practices. Given that time frame and the desire to avoid setbacks or the other kinds of nagging leg injuries that Nicks has dealt with in his career, itt seems unlikely that he will be on the field when they face the Jets on Saturday night.

The time off shouldn’t do much to diminish Nicks’ chemistry with Eli Manning and all should be fine with the Giants offense as long as Nicks remains healthy through the rest of the preseason.

    and people said he wouldn’t be ready.

    You’re talking about the GMeN.

    We get ready at the right time.

    The wide 9 refers to the spacing of defensive line ONLY. Unless nnamdi was playing defensive end, the wide 9 had nothing to do with it. People should have to pass a football iq test to post on this site.

    Top 5 wr in the league. Looking forward to another 1000+ yard season.

    On September 5, the call will be what all of us had heard at some point during the season, Manning to Nicks, Touchdown Giants…

    Yo cheese wiz…I think you failed to pass the football IQ test.

    Your reply refers to the Nnamdi story which isn’t on the The SuperBowl Champion Hakeem Nicks page. Then again, I can see why you got lost.

    Just let me see him play in Game 3 of the preseason and keep it light. WE NEED HICKS HEALTHY this year.

    “Tenard Jackson will send him back to that list.”

    Wow. Wishing for your team to deliberately hurt another player. We all know from your posts that you’re one of the top ten assclowns on this site and what you know about football wouldn’t fill a sentence, but wanting another team’s player on the PUP? That’s disgusting. These men have families and are human beings. I know as a Skins fan you have had nothing to cheer about for over a decade, but try to crawl out from under that rock you’ve been living under.

    Welcome back, Mr. Nicks. Right on schedule.

  15. bluereign says: Aug 13, 2012 6:10 PM

    Top 5 WR.

    He’ll probably fake an injury in the week of the game anyway. Or Josh Wilson will shut him down. Either way, he’s not doing anything against the SUPERSKINS brother. He better not go over the middle to be sure. Sweep, Sweep.

    Hey sister. If you sweep us again and we win a super bowl again, does it even matter if the redskins win those games at all? Sister?

    Sorry, couldn’t hear that. All I could hear was “I got a ring, he got one too”

    That’s why Philly can’t win a championship, the Fan’s and players can’t read.

    LOL.

    Josh who? the Foreskins will at the bottom of the the barrel again. The only thing they’ll sweep will be the parade confetti for the GMEN this season.

    Wait, when was the last time the Deadskins won the division again?

  25. mhohmann says: Aug 13, 2012 8:38 PM

    It’s sad when a team prides themselves on 2 meaningless games and actually believes it’s relevent.
