Found February 23, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and offensive lineman David Baas both underwent surgery recently, head coach Tom Coughlin told reporters at the NFL scouting combine. Nicks underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, one of the injuries that hampered him throughout the 2012 season, as the wide receiver also dealt with a fractured foot. It was reported that Nicks sustained his knee injury in part due to compensating for his fractured foot. These injuries forced Nicks to miss three games last season, as he finished the year with 53 receptions for 692 yards and three touchdowns. Coughlin wouldn’t specify Baas’ procedure, only saying that he had work done “on his body.” While this seems extremely vague, Baas was a walking injury report last season, so the coach’s prognosis makes some sense. Baas frequented the team’s weekly reports with a multitude of injuries, including hand, elbow, ankle, hip and shoulder ailments. Despite his laundry list of injuries, Baas started all 16 games for the Giants this season.

Wide receivers have not been an issue for the New York Giants to develop over the last couple of seasons with Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Domenik Hixon, Mario Manningham, Ramses Barden, Steve Smith, etc… The Giants would lose a few productive receivers season after season and a new crop would take their place without any hiccups, but this can’t last forever if your wide receivers aren’t dev...
