Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks didn't play in Week 12 because, according to head coach Tom Coughlin, a groin injury kept him from practicing enough. Nicks says he could have played against the Cowboys, but that's in the past. And that extra week off has Nicks feeling "real good" physically heading into Sunday night's game versus the Redskins.
"I think I showed them enough this week in practice," Nicks said. "So, I think everything will be good to go."
Nicks has been a full-season bust. He hasn't topped 50 yards since Week 6 and still hasn't scored a touchdown. Even against the Redskins' abhorrent pass defense, he is a desperation play as a flex/WR3.
