Neither Nicks nor Cruz show for physicals Monday

There will be other minicamps tomorrow, and there will be other stories.

Some of which have been beaten nearly as close to death.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Giants wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz were no-shows for team physicals Monday in advance of Tuesday’s mandatory minicamp.

As a practical matter, it might not matter.

Cruz hasn’t signed a contract, and until he does, he can’t be fined for being absent. Nicks can be fined, up to $66,150 if he skips all three days.

But Nicks could also roll in first thing in the morning and take a physical if need be.

That might be the plan, as quarterback Eli Manning said he had exchanged texts with Nicks, and expects to see him Tuesday (via Tom Rock of Newsday).

We’ll find out tomorrow, when the Giants take the field.

Unless of course the rest of the noise deafens us.

  1. Why, what happened? Peace in the Middle East? Favre and Thompson hug it out? Scott Boras grow a heart? Oh. Saint Timmy signed. Great, unleash the media hoards upon New England. Cue the hippe Tebowians to load up their buses, ROAD TRIP! But Cruz, no deal means no mini camp. Nicks is healing up from knee surgery, so no mini camp. Shut it Tom.

  2. These two wouldn’t last five seconds with this no call, no show nonsense at a “normal” job. Let’s go fellas, punch in and get to work already.

  3. I’m a Giant fan and, if I were either of them, I’d holdout. They won’t have any more leverage then now and together.

  4. I prefer Nicks to stay as far away from the field as possible until the regular season. Stay healthy and be ready week 1.

  5. no worries here- we all know when it comes time to it theyll be ready to burn dallas again. we will see a salsa week one..and nicks needs every bit of recovery time..guys a human hangstring pull all he does is get hurt
