Hakeem Nicks has missed the New York Giants' last three games, but it looks like he may be available for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.  Nicks has tried to travel with the team the last two weeks, but his status was downgraded.  He is still listed as questionable, but the fact that he is traveling with the team is a good sign. Nicks was able to practice twice this week fueling speculation that while he will be a game-time decision, he will likely play says Tom Rock of Newsday.  Nicks was also able to run three times this past week without any setbacks. The Giants wide receiver originally injured his right knee in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Nicks had 199 yards receiving in the game, but he has not played since.  The New York Giants could use him back as the look to continue their run as defending Super Bowl champions. Nicks has 14 receptions on the season for a total of 237 yards this season.  He is averaging 16.9 yards per receptions.  Nicks is in his fourth NFL season, all with the Giants.  He has averaged 15.1 yards per reception in his career.  Nicks has 444 yards receiving in four games during last season's playoffs. The Giants are 3-2 on the season and in first place in the NFC East.  However, they are tied with the Philadelphia Eagles and both the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins are just one game back.  They will need Hakeem Nicks to offer another target for Eli Manning.  Manning is proving himself as one of the elite quarterbacks in the league, but he could be even better this season with the elite talent of Hakeem Nicks on the field.
