    Hakeem Nicks returns to New York Giants practice

    LINK

    Hakeem Nicks was a surprise absentee from the New York Giants practice on Thursday. He was back on the field Friday and should be ready for Sunday's meeting with the New Orleans Saints.

    Nicks was held out Thursday with knee soreness, The Star-Ledger reported, and the receiver continues to deal with pain from the sprained left MCL he suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

    Coach Tom Coughlin said Nicks was sidelined for precautionary reasons after playing in the last seven games. He's finally found some rhythm with quarterback Eli Manning, hauling in 19 of his 46 receptions over the past three games.

    Nicks will play if he can. I trust his judgment. Game Day is what matters. Check this out.

    He might play but how effective will he be. They should have rested him earlier in the season until the bye. He had done nothing since he came back against the 49ers until his first game back after the bye and them he got hurt again a game later.

    Doesn't matter how effective he'll be. Who else would you rather have in there? Especially against this weak secondary we are playing. I'll take a 75% Nicks over a 90% Hixon.

    I'm not so sure about that.

    Yeah, especially because that's exactly what we have been seeing since he came back against the 49ers and has been a non factor.

    Usually I'd agree but it seems that Nicks is the only WR on the team right now who can actually hold on to the ball. Hes not going to beat anyone deep but at least he can be used as a security blanket.

    I I think Nicks is still the best receiver on the team but his value is when he is 100 percent he gives Cruz, Randle, & Jernigan the chance to make plays as well due to his coverage
