After missing a week three game against the Carolina Panthers, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks said it was merely because of a quick turnaround and that he would play in week four against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, when Big Blue revealed their final injury report on Friday afternoon, Nicks was listed as doubtful with both a foot injury and a swollen knee.
With Nicks likely out, that means increased reps for Ramses Barden … who's anxious to see more playing time.
“I just wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude for Eli’s trust and faith in me throughout the game, to keep coming my way,” said Barden. “I like to think that if he’s going to give me a chance, I want to do my best to help him with what he’s trying to achieve. If he trusts me enough to throw my way, I need to do my job and come down with it.”
He will again have to compete with Domenik Hixon for playing time, who will be returning after missing a game due to a concussion suffered in week two.
Meanwhile, tackle David Diehl, cornerback Jayron Hosley and linebacker Keith Rivers have been ruled out. Cornerback Michael Coe and safety Antrel Rolle are questionable, while running back Ahmad Bradshaw and Hixon are listed as probable.
