  • Giants' Hakeem Nicks, Chase Blackburn, Martellus Bennett not practicing today

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "It's Wednesday so that means another long list of players on the Giants practice injury report.

    In his press conference this morning, Tom Coughlin said WR Hakeem Nicks (knee/foot), TE Martellus Bennett (hyperextended left knee), LB Chase Blackburn (hip), DT Rocky Bernard (quadriceps), and RB Andre Brown (concussion) will not practice today.

    But there was some good news in there: Coughlin said Blackburn is scheduled to practice tomorrow and he's optimistic Nicks will practice this week. When Nicks does practice during the week it's usually been on Thursdays.

    "Yes, hopefully," Coughlin answered when asked about Nicks. "We'll see. It's like any other week, but hopefully he'll get a practice in."

    Coughlin said Brown, who is the third Giants player in five weeks to sustain a concussion, hasn't passed the league's concussion protocol." Read more...


    Giants' Nicks looks good running

    Excerpt: "It’s another week and another long injury report for the Giants, who start off preparation for the 49ers with 13 players on the list. One familiar name on the list, Hakeem Nicks, did not practice on Wednesday but there is a sign of progress, as Tom Coughlin said the plan is for Nicks to get on the field sometime this week.

    As the Giants practiced inside their field house, Nicks did some running and cutting outside on the grass and looked as if he was moving without favoring his right foot or left knee, the two problem areas that have kept him out of action for three straight games. The key for Nicks will be if he is able to practice on Thursday and if he does, how he responds afterward.

    Several players who missed last week’s victory over the Browns were able to return to practice on some level. WR Ramses Barden (concussion) participated, as did RT David Diehl (knee), CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and LB Keith Rivers (hamstring). In addition, LB Michael Boley (hip) and S Antrel Rolle (knee) were on the field as well." Read more..

    If Nicks can't go again, we still have Cruz, Hixon, Randle, and Barden as well as Eli's ability spread the ball around

    ESPN: Injury Report: Nicks does some running

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...s-some-running

    Excerpt: "Hakeem Nicks did some running on the side and looked quick and agile.

    Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Nicks will not practice today, but he is hopeful the wide receiver will practice sometime this week.

    Seeing Nicks move side to side, backpedal and run somewhere between half to three-quarters pace is encouraging and a positive step toward playing against San Francisco on Sunday. If Nicks can practice on Thursday and come out of it with no setback to his knee or surgically repaired foot, the receiver will be on track to returning. He has missed the last three games."

    Hmm it's as if we were being extra careful with a ton of these guys and decided to save them for the 49ers game. Not surprised one bit.
