Hakeem Nicks Injury Update: 'No Setbacks' For Wide Receiver

When he broke his foot during off-season workouts, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was adamant that despite needing surgery he would be ready to start the regular season. Sunday Nicks said he is on target to do just that.

"There are definitely no setbacks. Everything is going the way we planned, so we’re just sticking to the things that the doctors and trainers told us," Nicks said.

Nicks said he has begun to run and believes he will be back on the practice field by mid-August. Sunday he could be seen on a side field at UAlbany doing a handful of individual agility drills as the rest of the team practiced.

"I’m ready to get back at it, and I feel like I need to be out there with the guys. I’m just following the instructions of the team doctors and the team trainers," Nicks said.

Nicks, 24, is entering his fourth NFL season. He caught 76 passes last season for 1,192 yards (15.7 yards per catch) and seven touchdowns. Along with Victor Cruz he forms one of the most dangerous receiving duos in the NFL.
