Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE
During the Giants' second OTA in May, Hakeem Nicks suffered a fractured bone in his right foot. Michael Eisen of Giants.com reported that the injury would require 12 weeks of recovery.
The team played most of its preseason games without its top receiver, but Nicks returned in time to play in the Giants' final exhibition matchup versus New England.
He managed to haul in one catch over the middle of the field for a gain of six, before taking a seat along with the rest of the first-teamers.
Nicks reported no issues with the foot, as he explained during his sideline interview (via NFL.com), "No problem with the foot. It felt good, and I'll be ready to start the season."
Nicks showed no signs of hampered mobility Wednesday. He suited up to play in all but one game in 2011, so history would lead us to believe this shouldn't be a lingering issue for the 24-year-old.
Expect Nicks to pick up right where he left off in '11. Regardless of his limited action in the preseason, he's still lining up wide as Eli Manning's top threat.
