Nicks was listed as questionable as he makes his way back from surgery to repair his fifth metatarsal back in late May. He looked fine in warmups, cutting, stopping and running routes and catching passes from Eli Manning.
There is one mildly surprising starting lineup change. Linebacker Keith Rivers will start at outside linebacker for Michael Boley (hamstring). Boley is active and will rotate in. Rivers started during the preseason while Boley was injured.
Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, cornerback Prince Amukamara (ankle), running back Da'Rel Scott (knee), guard Mitch Petrus, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, offensive tackle James Brewer (back) and defensive tackle Marvin Austin (back) are inactive for the game.
Amukamara and Austin are hoping to play in Week 2 against Tampa Bay.
