This Given Sunday:
New York Giants
New England Patriots
This Given Sunday is examining the biggest injury questions before each week of the NFL season. Here are the top-five health-related storylines entering Week 5.
When Nicks has been on the field this season, he's been lights out. Unfortunately, he hasn't been on the field a lot. The New York Giants receiver went directly from foot injury to knee injury and missed his second straight game after he suffered a setback heading into the weekend. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has expressed some concern about the progress Nicks has been making, admitting earlier in the week that the balky knee hasn't improved much.
Nicks might be a game-time decision Sunday against Cleveland, but fantasy owners shouldn't count on him unless absolutely necessary. On the bright side, you'll know his status with plenty of time to spare because that game kicks off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
The star tight end should probably be considered doubtful for...
BEST OF MAXIM
Yesterday it was reported that New York Giants wide
receivers Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden were questionable for the team’s Week
5 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. While Barden is still questionable as
he deals with concussion symptoms, the Giants have ruled Nicks out for Sunday,
reports Greg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Nicks continues to be slowed by a knee injury...
Hakeem Nicks (knee/foot) will miss a second straight game this weekend, opening the door for Domenik Hixon in all formats. If you’re a Nicks owner, stop reading this, pick up Hixon, and come back.
Go get him.
OK, now that that’s taken care of, here are some pro Hixon numbers for you. He was constantly targeted last week against a pretty decent secondary in Philly. He caught 6...
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...
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.
The good news is that Coughlin says Nicks has walked around fine, but the bad news is that his knee is still swollen.
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks won't play in
Sunday's game against Cleveland because of recurring foot and knee
After missing a week three game against the Carolina Panthers due to a quick turnaround, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was expected to be ready for a week four meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles. He wasn't. And not because of his foot, but because his left knee had developed some unexpected swelling. Now, with a near must-win game looming against the Cleveland...
The New York Giants are easily the most banged-up squad in
the National Football League entering Week 5. The team has seven players listed
on the injury report as out or doubtful, including key contributors Hakeem
Nicks, Ramses Barden, Kenny Phillips and David Diehl.
Nicks will miss another week of action due to his leg injury, and fellow wide receiver Ramses Barden...
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.
“He complained of a headache and asked if he could be evaluated,” Coughlin said, via the team. “They sent him for the evaluation yesterday. I think a lot of the symptoms were okay, but there was enough there...
The NFL injuries are mounting as we make our way into the second quarter of the 2012 NFL season, and seeing such marquee names including Greg Jennings, Hakeem Nicks and Jake Locker all ruled out on the NFL Week 5 Injury Report is a telling sign that nobody is safe from missing time in 2012.
The Green Bay Packers ruled Jennings out for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts...
New York Giants rookie wide receiver Rueben Randle has come under some criticism after last week's game. Some, including fellow wide receiver Victor Cruz, have questioned his work ethic and maturity level. But after injuries suffered by starter Hakeem Nicks (knee) and Ramses Barden (concussion), Randle may get his chance this Sunday against the Browns to prove his head is in...
