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
