Hakeem Nicks flies to San Francisco, appears set to play

For the first time since Week Two, Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks appears ready to play.

Nicks is on the Giants’ flight to San Francisco for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, which is a strong sign that he will play. Nicks has been listed as questionable, but he said during the week that he was feeling good at practice and optimistic he could go.

After dealing with a foot injury for much of the offseason, Nicks has more recently been set back by swelling in his knee. But he practiced on two straight days this week and didn’t experience any further swelling, which suggests he’s ready to go.

Nicks had a great game the last time he played, catching 10 passes for 199 yards in the Giants’ Week Two win over the Buccaneers. He caught five passes for 55 yards the last time he played in San Francisco, in the NFC Championship Game.

Giants tackle David Diehl and cornerback Corey Webster, who are also listed as questionable, also made the trip to San Francisco. The only players not making the trip are defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, running back Andre Brown and safety Kenny Phillips.

    Giants are going to need the whole arsenal on Sunday. With all of their weapons in tact on offense, I’m cautiously optimistic they’ll get it done in San Fran.

    How refreshing to see comments from Giants fans who are Passionate but not arrogant and condescending. Thanks! This should be a great game. As a Niners fan, I’ve been amazed by their dominance the last couple of weeks, but I expect the G-Men to be a much harder nut to crack.
