Two of the NY Giants‘ key offensive weapons are back on the practice field today. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) and running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) are practicing after each didn’t participate yesterday, Jorge Castillo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Nicks’ exclusion from practice yesterday was a surprise after he had not been included on the team’s injury report and practiced Wednesday. Tom Coughlin said Nicks was dealing with a sore knee and was kept out as a precautionary measure, but there’s no doubt that if your betting the Giants this weekend, keep your eye on Nicks’ injury to make sure he goes.
Nicks sustained a sprained left MCL against the Buccaneers in Week 2 and has battled with the injury since. He missed three games, but has played in the last seven.
It was Bradshaw’s first time practicing this week, but that’s a weekly routine. He had his third 100-yard game of the season Monday night when he had 24 carries for 103 yards against the Redskins.
