While the New York Giants will be getting running back Ahmad Bradshaw back from a neck injury Sunday during their primetime contest against the Philadelphia Eagles, the team is listing wide receiver Hakeem Nicks as doubtful.

Nicks missed last Thursday’s game against the Carolina Panthers due to a knee injury, but most expected him to return this weekend after the additional time off.  However, it’s not clear that the talented wide out will be able to join his teammates against their NFC East rivals.
Bradshaw says the inflamed disk in his neck that kept him out of the Carolina game is no longer an issue and that he’ll be ready to go Sunday night.  He doesn’t expect to be limited tomorrow, but he will likely split time with running back Andre Brown, who performed brilliantly as Bradshaw’s fill-in last week.
Linebacker Keith Rivers and offensive tackle David Diehl, who are each dealing with leg injuries, will not be able to return against the Eagles.

QUICK SPIN: Nicks Knee Swells – Doubtful for Week 4

The frustration continues for Hakeem Nicks owners. The star receiver missed last week after aggravating a foot injury but he appeared to be on track to play in week 4. There appears to be a complication that has caused the Giants to downgrade Nicks' status to doubtful that is not related to the foot to painful swelling in a knee.

I am a little tired of the constant complaint of Philly fans who demand a more "balanced" offense out of the Eagles attack... Offensive "balance" is a myth in today's NFL...
