During Monday’s press conference, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said that Hakeem Nicks’ knee isn’t improving and made it clear that he’s concerned about his health going forward.

Even though Domenik Hixon had a strong game on Sunday night, this isn’t good news. The Giants clearly missed Nicks this past Sunday.

New York Giants dominated by injuries: More from an afternoon tea with Tom Coughlin
