  • Nicks is OK, But Will "Slow Down" At Practice

    http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/gia...wn-at-practice

    Excerpt: "The MRI on Hakeem Nicks’ troublesome left knee showed “no new injury” on Tuesday, just “the same old stuff” he said.

    It was enough, though, for Tom Coughlin to say the Giants are “probably going to have to slow down a little bit” with how much Nicks is able to do during practice each week.

    Coughlin wouldn’t say exactly what he meant by that, but Nicks said the plan includes no more “full” practices this season. He said he’ll likely practice only on a limited basis either just once or twice each week.

    He’ll also continue to play through the pain of an injury, which is likely much more serious than he’s been willing to say publicly.

    “I’m doing good,” Nicks said with a wink. “It’s just that time of year.” Read more...

    What's "same old stuff"....anyone know? I was under the impression there were no tears or damage at all.......are they implying there is something that has to be repaired but they're waiting until after the year?

      his knee is bothering him so thee has to be some sort of "damage" in there. Or else it wouldnt hurt or swell....

        Nicks should not play, if his knee is in bad shape..The swelling and Pain is an indication that there's more to it ..... I'm sure if can play, he will !.... Besides it's better to Treat & rest it, and play the Last 2 games, and the play offs games if he's able to. We have no choice but to use Barden or Randle.

            why not a few weeks off it and let it heal up? wouldnt this be better than 70-80percent each week?

              in most cases yes. But the way the offense has been playing they need his prescence on the field. IDK.....tough call. If the had a playoff spot clinched then its a no brainer but they arent there yet.

                I wish Eli would stop locking on to him. It just isn't working.

                  He's his favorite receiver, even when he's not 100%.

                  Eli has gotten into the habit of throwing a ton of balls his way and when he's healthy and that's obviously a good idea. He's overestimating Nicks's health and throwing him balls that he would absolutely catch if he was healthy but can't make a play on because he's at 80%.

                    Take from someone who knows. I've had my knees drained to relieve swelling more time than I can remember... knee swelling means damage to the knee plain & simple. >85% chance surgery will be required sometime in the future. Book it.

                        I'm fine with that and expect an arthroscopic cleaning at least at the end of the year but I wish they'd say that than just say "the same old stuff" because after his initial MRI they officially said nada......so I'm still in the dark to what that may be.

                          I was watching the replay the Falcons/Giants from last year.. Nicks isn't close to being himself.. If he was 100% then, he's like 60% now

                            what??/ do u know how many nfl players get their knees drained? or get swelling? these guys are making violent cuts, and basically just overwork their knees. the fact nicks knee is swelling does not mean he needs surgery, AT ALL. it could mean that, but it could also mean he's just been overusing it. when he first came back from the foot injury, he had an issue with the knee swelling bc and this is according to the giants, he went from full rest, elevating his foot, and hardly using his knee at all, to going full contact with sudden, intense motions of the knee. when that happens, ur gonna get swelling.
                            swelling means that the muscle/tenden has become inflamed due to overuse or injury. notice how its ...OR injury. there are other explanations for the knee swelling. u really think the giants would jeopardize nicks future by playing him when a surgery is needed???? the reason they are cutting down on the practices is to cut down on the stress to the knee so the inflammation subsides. the giants arent coy with injured guys, they wont risk a players future, point blank. if nicks needs surgery, theyd go ahead and get the surgery and not jeopardize him to get him at 60% health.

                              Nothing new, just what's been bothering him for weeks.
