Giants WR Hakeem Nicks will play through pain Wednesday
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks told NFL.com that he is prepared to play a full complement of snaps Wednesday night against the Dallas Cowboys. He said he has suffered no setbacks with him surgically repaired foot, but he also expects the foot to be barking at him during the game.
"It's not going to feel great, I know that, but it's a matter of me having the desire and want to get through it," Nicks said. "... I think I just gotta deal with the pain, I don't think I'll adjust my game any. Whatever the scenario is, I'm just going to go out there and play hard. When I'm playing, it's out of sight, out of mind."
But the story here is that Nicks is going to play, and he's probably going to play a lot Wednesday. He's a WR1 and a high-quality start in what could be a shootout.
