September 28, 2012 New York Giants Injury Report – Nicks Doubtful; Hosley Out: Not practicing yesterday were WR Hakeem Nicks (foot/knee), OT David Diehl (knee), LB Keith Rivers (hamstring), and CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring). Nicks is officially listed as “doubtful” for the game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Diehl, Rivers, and Hosley have been ruled “out” of the game.
Not only is Nicks doubtful, but the team said the Nicks is now experiencing swelling in his left knee. That would be a new injury in addition to his right foot issues. Apparently, Nicks banged his knee in the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the knee swelled after his first practice back on Thursday. It’s not clear how serious the knee injury is.
S Antrel Rolle (knee) and CB Michael Coe (hamstring) were limited in practice. Both are “questionable” for the game.
HB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), CB Corey Webster (hand), WR Domenik Hixon (concussion), and DE Adewale Ojomo (hamstring) fully practiced. All four players are “probable.”
