The fact that everyone is being secretive about Nicks' injury is what bothers me. He hasn't played since 9/16 against the Buccaneers, so by now the coaching staff must know what the full diagnosis is. They seem to just be playing wait-and-see mind games with our opponent because he's an impact player you'd want to prepare for.
Knee injuries are scary too. What if he ends up reaggravating whatever's wrong with his knee next week if he were to play against the Niners? Is there a world record for torn ACL's by one team? Because I think we might have a record. If this is any kind of serious injury give him the time he needs.
