    NEW YORK GIANTS' DOMENIK HIXON SAYS KNEE "FEELS GOOD"

    NEW YORK GIANTS' DOMENIK HIXON SAYS KNEE "FEELS GOOD"

    "The last time you saw wide receiver Domenik
    Hixon
    , he weighed about 190 lbs and was being carted off the field after
    tearing his ACL in week two of the 2011 season against the St. Louis Rams. Fast
    forward to Wednesday and the start of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and Hixon
    is back, healthy and considerably bulked up.


    The five-year NFL veteran was
    visibly larger
    than he was in 2011, saying he had put on close to 25 lbs. And despite weighing
    in at 213 lbs., he showed absolutely no signs of losing a step. He was as speedy
    and agile as ever, breaking in and out of his cuts with ease.




    Along with Victor Cruz and rookie Reuben Randle, Hixon returned to a familiar
    role on Wednesday: returning punts.




    In his absence, the Giants have total of 0 punt returns for a touchdown. In
    fact, the last time the team returned a punt for a touchdown was in a December
    2009 victory over the Dallas Cowboys … when Hixon did it. Moreover, the return
    game has struggled in yards per return, averaging only 6.1 yards (Hixon averaged
    10.3 ypr before he was injured).




    A healthy Hixon brings a lot of versatility to Big Blue. Not only is he an
    adequate wide receiver, he also takes their return game to a whole new level.
    And if looks are any indication, you have a man who is determined to stay on the
    field and make an impact in 2012."

    stay healthy D-Hix, we need you back !!!




    hmmm, from 190 to 213, interesting ... should make him more durable, but will it affect his speed/quickness at all ... not that 213 is much for any NFL player at any position

    Let's be cautiously optimistic that his knee will hold up. The rest is up to Hixon.

    In the wake of Nicks fracturing a bone in his foot, let's hope Hixon stays healthy

    if he can stay healthy, Jurrnigan steps it up from last year (word is he looks much better/more comfortable than any time last season), and some production from Randle, we should be able to weather the storm until Nicks is healed up.
