Hakeem Nicks Injury Update: Giants WR Says He Is 'Definitely Still On Target' For Opening Night

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is still on the physically unable to perform list, but says he is not experiencing pain in the foot he fractured back in May. Nicks was running routes at Giants training camp at the University of Albany on Tuesday.

Nicks has not ruled out practicing with the team in Albany, but also said that he is not concerned about being able to play in preseason games.

"I don't really think about it. My main concern is making sure that when I do step on the field that I'm healthy, and I'm 100 percent. That's our whole focus right now - need to make sure we're taking the right steps to make it that way."

However, Nicks feels he is still on track to play in the Giants' season-opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 5.

"Definitely still on target, no setbacks. Everything is going well. I've been running every day. No setbacks. Feeling good. Getting back."
