Nicks Out 2-3 Weeks:


The Giants will anxiously await the results of the MRI on Hakeem Nicks’ “sprained” left foot tomorrow morning, however according to an NFL source the initial expectation is that the rookie receiver will be out 2-3 weeks.

That, of course, is only the preliminary diagnosis. Though the source, who has been briefed on Nicks’ injury, did insist that “He will be OK”, he also added that Nicks and the Giants were “hoping for the best.” It appears that the Giants do not believe that Nicks suffered a Lis Franc injury, only that he suffered a “sprain.”

X-Rays were negative, but that is the case sometimes when a Lis Franc injury occurs.

Even 2-3 weeks is a blow to Nicks, who suffered through a strained hamstring in camp and hoped to get off to a fast start this season. It continues a terrible run of luck for Giants rookie receivers over the last 2 1/2 decades. Nicks looked like he had a chance to become the first rookie to catch more than 16 passes for the Giants since 1984.

Hopefully Nicks can recover quickly. He looks to have a bright future with the giants.
