    Nicks is OK, But Will "Slow Down" At Practice

    http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/gia...wn-at-practice

    Excerpt: "The MRI on Hakeem Nicks’ troublesome left knee showed “no new injury” on Tuesday, just “the same old stuff” he said.

    It was enough, though, for Tom Coughlin to say the Giants are “probably going to have to slow down a little bit” with how much Nicks is able to do during practice each week.

    Coughlin wouldn’t say exactly what he meant by that, but Nicks said the plan includes no more “full” practices this season. He said he’ll likely practice only on a limited basis either just once or twice each week.

    He’ll also continue to play through the pain of an injury, which is likely much more serious than he’s been willing to say publicly.

    “I’m doing good,” Nicks said with a wink. “It’s just that time of year.” Read more...

    Nicks should not play, if his knee is in bad shape..The swelling and Pain is an indication that there's more to it ..... I'm sure if can play, he will !.... Besides it's better to Treat & rest it, and play the Last 2 games, and the play offs games if he's able to. We have no choice but to use Barden or Randle.

    why not a few weeks off it and let it heal up? wouldnt this be better than 70-80percent each week?

    in most cases yes. But the way the offense has been playing they need his prescence on the field. IDK.....tough call. If the had a playoff spot clinched then its a no brainer but they arent there yet.

    I wish Eli would stop locking on to him. It just isn't working.

    He's his favorite receiver, even when he's not 100%.

    Eli has gotten into the habit of throwing a ton of balls his way and when he's healthy and that's obviously a good idea. He's overestimating Nicks's health and throwing him balls that he would absolutely catch if he was healthy but can't make a play on because he's at 80%.

    Take from someone who knows. I've had my knees drained to relieve swelling more time than I can remember... knee swelling means damage to the knee plain & simple. >85% chance surgery will be required sometime in the future. Book it.
