New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks may have returned last Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, but he admits he was far from 100% and just going through the motions. Now, after his first full week of practice all season, he feels like he's got a lot more to offer the Big Blue offense going into week seven.
"This week I had a full week of practice so I expect it to be better," Nicks said. "Next week will be better. I just want to keep getting better."
Head coach Tom Coughlin was thrilled to have Nicks in practice all week -as you might expect- and praised the youngster for working hard and pushing himself.
"He’s fought through everything. Everyday he comes back out and he tells me he feels good about it and so he gets probably half the reps. So he’s excited and anxious and hopefully it will be consistent; physically, there will be no setbacks," Coughlin said.
A healthy and productive Hakeem Nicks would be a nightmare for the Washington Redskins, who have had trouble slowing down far inferior offenses than the Giants' all year. They currently rank dead last in the NFL against the pass, giving up an average of 329 yards per game, and have only faced one top-five passing offense all season.
In other words: Fantasy Alert. Nicks & Co. may put up some huge numbers this Sunday.
