Hakeem Nicks Injury Update: Wide Receiver Says 'I'll Be Ready To Go'

Injured New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who broke a bone in his foot during an OTA a week ago, said "I don't have any doubt" when asked if he would be ready for the team's Sept. 5 season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

The original prognosis for Nicks is that his recovery will take 12 weeks, and Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has said he is uncertain when Nicks will return.

"I definitely feel like I'll be ready to go when it's time to be ready to go," Nicks said on Thursday during a conference call.

"We just don't want no setbacks. The team wants to take it 12 weeks, that's what we're giving it, so that's what we're going to go by. My goal is always to come back earlier, we just don't want no setbacks. We have to play it smart and be ready for the season."

Nicks caught 79 passes for 1,192 yards and seven touchdowns last season, averaging 15.7 yards per catch. He is entering his fourth season.
