Excerpt: "Anyone that was still holding out hope that New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks would pull a miraculous Jason Witten-type turnaround and play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles can now let go. The team announced on Saturday that Nicks would not make the trip to Philly and was downgraded to out.
Although he had adequate rest for his foot, it was unexpected knee swelling that will cause Nicks to miss his second consecutive game.

Should probably rest him next week as well. We have a very important stretch of NFC games after Cleveland.
Its all good, Giants are 7-0 with out Nicks including last season's big win in NE....It's a good oppurtunity for Barden to build up his confidence and when Nicks comes back we'll be that much deeper and explosive because of it
