According to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks hasn’t been ruled out of tonight’s game against the Panthers because of any setbacks he’s suffered. He’s out because of the short week he wasn’t able to rest his foot the way he normally would. With the short week he had trouble running during Wednesday morning’s walk through.
Nicks struggled when he tried to run in this morning’s walk-through in New Jersey. Nicks did not have a setback, according to two people with knowledge of his condition, but the soreness in his foot was too much to overcome on a short week.
The good news is that Nicks will have 10 days to rest for next Sunday night’s game against the Eagles.
