    Giants' Domenik Hixon has chance to step up with Hakeem Nicks' injury

    Giants' Domenik Hixon has chance to step up with Hakeem Nicks' injury

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...m-nicks-injury

    Excerpt: "Over the last two weeks, Hakeem Nicks has been out of the Giants' starting lineup with a knee injury.

    His status for Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns has not yet been determined, but according to Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News, it's not looking good.

    After his 10-catch, 199-yard and a touchdown game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2, receivers like Ramses Barden and Rueben Randle have had opportunities to step up.

    Barden stepped up in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers, but struggled in Week 4 against the Eagles. Randle has yet to be a factor at all this season.

    However, against the Eagles, one receiver did step up: Domenik Hixon.

    Against Philadelphia, Hixon had six catches for 114 yards, averaging 19 yards per reception with a long of 41 yards for the Giants." Read more...

    People forget that Hixon had the inside track for the #1 receiver spot when Plax went down in '08.

    If he's on the field, he's always been a great weapon for Eli.

    Hixon is a good player but no matter how you sugar coat it losing Nicks is a huge problem. There are only a maybe 5 WR's in the league that could take his place.

    He's not as fast as Nicks, never has been. But it seems as though he hasn't lost a step after 2 ACL surguries, and that is HUGE...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.

    Before his ACL injuries he was faster than Nicks. Nicks is not what you would call a fast WR.

    IA Kruunch. After his performance against the Eagles, they will have to take him seriously thereby opening up more opportunities elsewhere as well. As usual, I'm pulling for 'the gazelle"!

    Hixon showed what he can do last game and I still have faith in him. What krunch said - people forget that and even with his ACL, sure he lost a step but he still can provide us 3rd receiver stats. Even #2.Well be fine with him as long as he stays healthy and doesn't get Injured again.

    No one is suggesting he should replace Nicks, he's a good alternative when he's down

    Hixon is an ideal number 3 wide receiver
