Though New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin did not have an update Monday on the results of wide receiver Hakeem Nicks' MRI, but a source told ESPN New York that his hamstring injury does not appear to be serious. Nicks suffered the injury Sunday against the Miami Dolphins and left the game during the fourth quarter.

The source said Nicks was "day-to-day" and that the plan was for the University of North Carolina product to "not anything."

"I am sure it is going to be day-to-day or however they want to say it," Coughlin said. "We will just have to see."

Unfortunately for the Giants, the prognosis for Justin Tryon was not as encouraging. Coughlin announced the backup cornerback will miss the remainder of the season and was placed on the injured reserve list with a broken arm suffered Sunday. According to Coughlin, Tryon planed two-and-a-half quarters with the injury and had surgery Monday, making him the fourth corner the Giants have lost this year after Terrell Thomas, Bruce Johnson and Brian Witherspoon. Rookie cornerback Prince Amukamara is still recovering from the broken foot he suffered in training camp and might play this Sunday against New England.
