September 12, 2012 New York Giants Injury Report – Nicks Misses Practice: WR Hakeem Nicks (foot) and DE Adewale Ojomo (hamstring) did not practice yesterday.
“Today was a rest day,” said Nicks. “I’ll be practicing tomorrow…Yeah (once a week I’ll take a day off). Until they decide to do something different. They don’t want to have any setbacks on it.”
CB Prince Amukamara (ankle), CB Michael Coe (hamstring), LB Keith Rivers (hamstring), OC David Baas (hip), and DT Marvin Austin (back) were limited.
“(Amukamara) won’t practice fully,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin before practice. “We’ll try to pick up where we left off Monday and continue to allow him to work. He does have some issues; he’s just fighting his way through them.”
“I don’t want to play with a limp so if I am limping out there, I am going to be a target out there,” said Amukamara after practice. “I am going to be a target out there anyways. The offensive coordinator is still going to smell blood. If I am able to run, but if it is still lingering, then that is cool. But if I am limping, I don’t think that is (good).”
“I think I’ll be good,” Coe said. “Everyday I keep getting better and feeling more confident in what I can do so I’m excited about that.”
HB Da’Rel Scott (knee) and OT James Brewer (back) fully practiced.
