New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has missed most of the pre-season with a broken foot, but says that the foot is not slowing him down and that he plans to be on the field Wednesday against the Cowboys.

“I have no setbacks, I’m expecting to play the whole game,” Nicks told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. “It’s a situation where you just gotta get used to playing with it. It’s not going to feel great, I know that, but it’s a matter of me having the desire and want-to get through it.”

Nicks, who had 76 catches for 1,192 yards last season, says he doesn’t see any reason he’d be any less productive this season.

“I think I just gotta deal with the pain, I don’t think I’ll adjust my game any,” he said. “Whatever the scenario is, I’m just going to go out there and play hard. When I’m playing, it’s out of sight, out of mind.“

While Nicks does not think the broken foot is going to slow him down, I think Victor Cruz and possibly rookie Reuben Randle will get more looks than Nicks in the beginning of the season. The good news for the Giants is they have plenty of weapons on offense. Even if Nicks is slowed by the injury, the team should not suffer much of an offensive set back.
