Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks isn’t frustrated, but he is questionable.
Nicks was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game with the Cowboys because of the abdominal injury that has caused him to be limited in two practices this week and miss another one altogether. Nicks said on Thursday that he plans on playing in the game because he doesn’t want to miss a matchup with the Cowboys and the fact that he was able to practice on Friday is a good sign for his ability to be in the lineup.
The same can’t be said of cornerback Corey Webster. Webster was out on the field with his teammates at practice, but he has been ruled out for the game. That makes three straight games on the sideline and seven absences overall because of a variety of injuries on the season for a veteran cornerback who might be coming to the end of his run with the Giants.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is probable with a shoulder injury and running back Brandon Jacobs is questionable with a knee injury for a game that the Giants need to win to give them a solid chance at winning the NFC East this season.
