The New York Giants will be without wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team announced Saturday that Nicks will miss the contest because of a knee problem and will not make the trip to Philadelphia. He previously missed a Sept. 19 win over Carolina with a sore foot.
Coach Tom Coughlin has said Nicks developed swelling in his left knee after working out Thursday. It was his only expected practice for the game.
Nicks banged his knee making a catch against Tampa Bay.
The Giants will likely start either Domenik Hixon or Ramses Barden. Hixon missed the Carolina game with a concussion, but is probable this week. Barden picked up the start against Carolina and had career bests of nine catches and 138 yards.

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.
