Nicks officially questionable, says he'll play
By Dan Graziano
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants officially list wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who has been limited in practice this week with an abdominal strain, as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Nicks missed practice Wednesday and was a limited participant Thursday and Friday, and Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the injury is keeping Nicks from "probably being full speed."
But Nicks said after Friday's practice that there had been "no change" since Thursday, when he insisted he'd play in the game.
"I feel good," he said.
Also listed as questionable was running back Brandon Jacobs, who has a knee injury but played last week and is likely to be active again ahead of Peyton Hillis. Cornerback Corey Webster, who has played in only parts of two games since Week 2 due to groin and ankle problems, has officially been declared out for the game.
All other Giants who have appeared on the injury report this week, including defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, fullback John Conner and cornerback Trumaine McBride, are listed as probable.
