GIANTS' HAKEEM NICKS ADDED TO THE INJURY LIST AS PROBABLE AFTER ROLLING ANKLE (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/giants_hakeem_nicks_added_to_t.html)

"The surprises on the Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants)’ injury
front didn’t stop with<a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/giants_david_baas_jake_ballard.html">
the portion of practice open to the media</a>.

Afterward, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was added to the report after rolling
his ankle. The team listed him as limited today but he’s down as probable for
Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.</p>

“Rolled it a little bit,” Nicks said. “Same one. Same one I rolled earlier in
the season. Same one I always roll.”</p>

Tom Coughlin called it “basketball ankle.” Nicks said he’s been dealing with
it for a few years now and rolls it twice per season. He said it happened while
running an in cut today.</p>

Still, Nicks isn’t concerned.</p>

“No, got no reason to be concerned about it. It’s an important game,” he
said. “I’ll put it out of my mind and won’t think about it.”</p>

Asked about dealing with the ankle on a potentially slick field, Nicks
replied, “Just tape it up, wrap it up real good. I’ll be all right.”</p>

At least it's not a new injury for Nicks.</p>

"Yeah that’s the good thing about it," he said. "Same one I’m used to dealing
with. Nothing new."</p>

* * * *</p>

TE Jake Ballard (knee) is listed as questionable after undergoing what
Coughlin termed a “procedure” on Thursday.</p>

Coughlin wouldn’t say what was done to Ballard except to clarify it wasn’t
surgery. It’s likely he received a shot or had fluid drained. Ballard said the
procedure took only a few minutes.</p>

Asked if the team knew the “procedure” would make Ballard feel worse in the
short term, Coughlin replied sarcastically, “We actually thought it wouldn’t.
Naturally, we did. What do you think those people do in there? Play cards.”</p>

* * * *</p>

Don’t read that last quote the wrong way. Coughlin wasn’t being nasty. He was
actually on a roll today in what was one of his most humorous press conferences
of all time.</p>

He was really on fire when asked if precautions were being taken to stop the
stomach bug that’s now hit C David Baas, who missed practice today but is listed
as probable.</p>

“Like what? Everybody’s wearing masks, everybody’s washing their hands,
everybody’s doing everything they can,” Coughlin said. “Like when your sister
came home with whatever and you got it. So there’s where we are.”</p>

* * * *</p>

Baas is struggling but QB Eli Manning (illness) is fine. He’s listed as
probable after practicing fully.</p>

Also probable: DEs Justin Tuck (shouler) and Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee), RB
Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), CB Corey Webster (hamstring) and LB Mark Herzlich
(ankle). All were limited today."</p>

This is unfortunate but at least he doesn't seem concerned. Apparently Patrick Willis didn't practice yesterday I'm not sure about today though
