Giants WR Nicks practices, appears ready for 49ers
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has practiced for the second straight day and there is a chance he will play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of the NFC title game.
The Giants listed Nicks as questionable in their injury report Friday, but teammates seemed to indicate that his chances of playing were better than 50-50.
Nicks has not played since the second week of the season, when he was sidelined with soreness in the right foot that he broke in the offseason, and swelling in his left knee. He returned to practice on Thursday for the first time in two weeks.
Coach Tom Coughlin said Nicks' status will be better determined Saturday when doctors see whether practicing aggravated either his foot or knee.
