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.
Left tackle Will Beatty (back) is also active but Sean Locklear will start as expected. Beatty is available as the extra offensive lineman.
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.
