The New York Giants are expected to welcome back a pair of wide receivers this weekend when they take on the San Francisco 49ers; Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden. Safety Antrel Rolle also says he’ll be able to play despite a lingering knee injury. Barden was cleared to return to practice this week and expects to be available against the 49ers. The wide receiver had been out due to a concussion. Nicks has also hinted that he’ll be able to return for Week 6. The dynamic receiver had been out since Week 2 while nursing a knee injury. Rolle’s knee injury hasn’t sidelined him, but he has missed practice as a result of the swelling and soreness. He said that while it’s not ideal, it will not keep him from playing this Sunday.
