    Injury Report: Nicks Limited Again

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-limited-again

    Excerpt: "Hakeem Nicks went through a limited practice again on Monday.

    The wide receiver experienced tightness in his groin on Sunday and watched the last chunk of Sunday's practice. So his participation on Monday was actually somewhat encouraging.

    Tom Coughlin was asked if Nicks being limited was for precautionary reasons.

    "I hope so," Coughlin said.

    Coughlin was asked if he's concerned that Nicks is being too cautious.

    "I don’t know that," Coughlin said. "That's not what he tells me. We just want him out there competing and practicing. The guy has not practiced and he really needs to get out there. We’ll have to see the extent of which we have an issue here."

    Wide receiver Kris Adams is dealing with a hand injury.

    "Yeah, his finger popped out on him but he popped it right back in," Coughlin said. "He’s fine." Read more...

    im not one to make a big deal out of training camp injuries like most people do, but damn it's always something with hakeem. i love the guy and want him to remain a life-long giant, but it's frustrating. hopefully he can stay healthy this season.

    So there's a line somewhere: how much practice can Nicks miss before it effects his play in the regular season.

    I can't be the only one who thinks that line is so far away as to not even be visible from where he is now.

    Do we know what Nicks was doing (conditioning-wise) while he wasn't at OTAs? We know Cruz was working out fairly vigorously but not much about Nicks during the off-season until mandatory mini-camp and then he was limited.

    It's a good point, but I assume that if he was not football ready we would have heard about it by now.

    It would be extra odd that he would show up not ready in a contract year.

    I guess that's what I'm asking, what shape is he in? He's got a groin issue which can happen, I don't necessarily consider that an "injury" as much as a temporary ailment. But, at some point, the coaches have to see something to evaluate.

    This dude is gone after this season. HE IS FRAGILE. Not worth the $10M+ he will want.

    ehhh i understand your frustration but it's still possible he has a monster season this year. let's wait and see. even though he's never had a season where he played 16 games, he still put up some solid stats. but yea he needs to show more durability or his contract won't be as large, or we won't re-sign him.

    Easy now, it's a tad early for that
