The New York Giants faced plenty of adversity en route to their Super Bowl win last season in terms of injuries, and it appears as though the obstacles have started early as they attempt to repeat.
According to Michael Eisen of Giants.com, Nicks suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot during an organized team workout. The injury is expected to keep him out for approximately 12 weeks as he will undergo surgery to have a screw inserted into the bone.
That timetable suggests that he will be unable to return until late August, which will force him to miss much, if not all, of training camp and the preseason.
Nicks was a major contributor to the team last season as he hauled in 76 passes for 1,192 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season, as well as 28 grabs for 444 yards and four scores in the playoffs.
