Post Nicks suffers foot injury
Hakeem Nicks - WR - Giants

Hakeem Nicks will be sidelined for approximately 12 weeks after fracturing the fifth metatarsal in his right foot on Thursday.

The non-contact injury occurred while Nicks was running a route tree in morning practice. He will undergo surgery Friday to have a screw inserted for stabilization. The timetable provided by the Giants would have Nicks out until the middle of training camp, and perhaps until a couple of weeks before the season opener. This is the latest in a string of lower-leg injuries for Nicks, who has dealt with multiple issues to his toe, foot, ankle, and knee in addition to Compartment Syndrome since joining the Giants in 2009. As long as he's on course over the next couple of months, Nicks will remain a high-risk, high-reward fantasy selection as a top-12 receiver. Rookie Rueben Randle should benefit from picking up valuable first-team reps through training camp.
