NFL Injury Report:
Question marks continue to surround New York Giants wide receivers
, as Hakeem Nicks
and Ramses Barden
each missed practice yesterday.
Nicks continued to be sidelined by injuries to his knee and foot, while Barden
was still feeling the effects of a concussion he suffered during a Week 4
matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Nicks is reportedly moving better on his injured leg, but
his status for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns remains unclear. The 24-year-old has only been able
to suit up for two games this season
, catching 14 passes for
237 yards and one touchdown.
Barden was able to step up for the Nicks-less Giants in a
big way during their Week 3 contest against the Carolina Panthers. The
26-year-old caught nine passes for 138 yards.
If Nicks and Barden are unavailable for Sunday’s game, the
Giants will use Domenik Hixon
as their second wide receiver beside starter

Earlier in the week we talked about the likelihood of Hakeem Nicks suiting up for the Giants. Now his replacement, Ramses Barden, might be doubtful too with a concussion.

According to Ohm Youngmusuk of ESPNNewYork.com, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks won’t practice today. Head coach Tom Coughlin isn’t sure if he’ll even practice on Thursday.
