There's optimism for Hakeem Nicks to be ready for the start of the season but the New York Daily News reports the receiver hasn't run routes that require cutting yet and might not for a while. Nicks is coming back from knee and foot injuries and did participate in the team's recent offseason workouts. "Just from past experience, I am being cautious," Nicks said. "I'm not taking it slow, but I'm taking it easy."
With the concern over a long-term deal growing for Victor Cruz, the Giants are going to need Nicks to be ready for the season. I'm sure things will get settled with Cruz though and all will be well for Eli Manning.
