Injury report: WR Nicks doubtful

By Ian Begley

Analysis: With Hakeem Nicks (foot/knee) doubtful, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride could start Domenik Hixon or Ramses Barden against Philadelphia on Sunday. Even if Barden doesn't get the nod, you can expect him to have a big role.

The fourth-year wideout exploded for nine catches and 138 yards in the Giants' Week 3 win over Carolina.

Antrel Rolle is questionable with a knee injury, but defensive coordinator Perry Fewell expects Rolle to play.

If he can't go on Sunday, look for reserve Stevie Brown to take his place.

With Jayron Hosley out due to a hamstring injury, Fewell may turn to Will Hill, Justin Tryon or Michael Coe to fill the void at third corner. Prince Amukamara is expected to start at corner opposite Corey Webster.

Here is the full injury report:
