Excerpt: "Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks sat out practice yesterday after the swelling in his knee returned, a potentially troubling sign.

Today, there was better news for the Giants: Nicks returned to the practice field, participating in the offensive walk-through and running routes in one-on-one drills during the portion of practice open to the media. His left knee, though, was heavily wrapped.

Nicks' official participation will be listed later.

Nicks began the season with a foot injury, and developed the knee injury in the Week 2 game against Tampa Bay. He then missed the next three games. Last week was the first time all season Nicks was not listed on the injury report, but he was again listed this week with the knee injury." Read more...

The silver lining in this report could be Chris Snee not practicing. If he can't go, Diehl will likely slide over to Guard and Locklear in at Tackle. Should be a better fit.

I might get flamed for this, but I say rest Bradshaw and Nicks this game. I have every confidence in Hixon filling the void a bit as well as Brown mixing in Wilson. the two weeks of rest should get these guys a little more ready for the tough stretch ahead.

Nah, you are right. Hixon or Barden in front of an injuried Nicks. And Brown and Wilson in front of Bradshaw.

He should sit this week. He has done nothing since coming back against the 49ers and just yesterday his knee had swelling. Sometimes a player needs to be held back. I know he wants to play, but he is not healthy. Give Randle his snaps. Now watch he goes out and has a career game. Lol.

Tomorrow will be telling if Nicks' knee swells up again. I agree about Bradshaw, but I don't see rest making his feet any better. So the question is do they make a real effort to give Brown more snaps?

I think it's more likely Randle will be the # 3 IF Nicks can't go.

Bradshaw could sit if he wants to but he won't

No player is going to ask not to play. I would be surprised if Ahmad is here next season though (assuming Brown and Wilson step up when called). I would not be surprised if Jerry Reese tried to re-structure Bradshaw's contract to free up some CAP space.

Dreams are free. I'd like to see this happen but I doubt it will.
