View Full Version : I'm worried about Nicks

There still unsure if he will play Sunday. This injury scares me because it is the type of injuy that seems like it will get better in a week or two, and then the next thing you know it's week 8 and they're putting him on the IR. Does anybody know any information on Nicks?

Last I heard he went in for an MRI and TC neither confirmed nor denied the results.

he has no structural damage to the knee. the swelling was due to not using it all week bc he was resting the corresponding foot injury and then going full bore on game day. knee wasnt ready for the impact on the turf, etc. and it swelled up.
he prob coulda played vs the browns imo but they wanted to give him as much time to rest that foot so it can heal as much as possible. we'll know on thur. if he plays bc thats the day of the week he practices for game day while his foot is still recovering

If he can play this would be a good week to show up!

Nicks is a tough player, but he is missing lots of time. I think that could also become an issue. Also, I'm not sold in his knee being just swollen. I don't think he is faking anything, but maybe the team is hiding something. Bennett played with a hyperextended knee the other day. I'd argue that right now he is almost as important to tis team as Nicks is. He is a tremendous blocker which helps the run game and keeps Eli safe. Even if Nicks does suit up it may be a bit much to expect him to pick up where he left off.

His practice day is Thursday, so let's wait to see what happens.

I dont bye that reasoning at all. I have bad knee and play Sunday morning softball once a week and my knee doesnt swell to the point of being useless and I am almost 50. There is something wrong with Nick's knee that they are waiting on. My guess would be a meniscus issue. I say he is out again for this Sunday.

Nicks won't play Sunday. Even Coughlin came on WFAN today and said although Nicks is anxious to play, he is week to week. I will be extremely surprised to see him on the field Sunday, based on what I've been told.

agreed....
Of course Nicks is anxious to play. That has no bearing on whether or not he plays. IMO....he has some meniscus issue with his knee they are keeping an eye on.

In all honesty this whole thread is 100% speculation,,,because the ONLY people that know anything at all are Nicks...the medical staff and probably the coaching staff.....and unless someone from this board is a fly on the trainers wall........we know less than squat.....like RF said before...he usually practices on Thursday....then we might know more....but we probably won't know anything till its announced that he will or will not play

They have other guys playing with injuries right now. Bennett was limping around all game.

+1 He's got a problem & they've been hiding it making other teams prepare for him possible playing. It's getting old if he needs a scope then I say scope it & get him back hopefully before playoffs & hope they can make the playoffs without him.

There hasn't been any scope. For his injury R&R is the necessity. I'm hoping for Skins game, if not that then definitely back for the Boys down in Texas.

thats why I thin kits a meniscus. That, as well as many other knee issues, can be "treated" with R&R. Whatever it is there is an issue that they are being vague about.

i think they know exactly what the problems are but they are just taking their time with Nicks! i mean this is only the 6th game of the season and we need him.

if he was already done for 8-10 weeks or the season they wouldve said it! whats their point?

http://boards.giants.com/showthread.php?20464-Giants-Hakeem-out-vs.-Browns&highlight=nicks+brownsthats nothing we didnt already know and it has nothing to do with the SF game. it was info in regard to the upcoming Browns game. now im not saying that i think he will play or not play. Dont have an opinion on it one way or the other. But from that Web Piece i dont see anything that indicates he will play or not play vs SF.

We will wait till Thursday like we always do and prob seeing him riding a stationary bike on the sidelines

I am probably not making Eagles this year unfortunately. Perhaps that would be a good omen because the last time I saw the Giants beat Philly at the Meadowlands was Osi's 6 sack game in '07. I went to the '08 playoff game, the '09 shootout when Eli fumbled when trying to run/slide at the end of the game, the Miracle at the Meadowlands part deux in 2010 and last year's disaster against Vince Young as well.

well bradshaw said nicks hinted to him that he'll play vs SF. and he also said that when nicks comes back it will be at 100% bc the team doesnt want a "week in week out" situation. that might xplain why he's missed some games when saying he'd def go.

i bet he plays vs sf and that he'll look very good

i thought he practices on thursdays? if he doesnt practice tmrw, that wouldnt really signal to me one way or the other however if he does practice tmrw, i'd say we could feel confident he'll play
