Hakeem Nicks’ injured hamstring has passed every test so far this week, and if the New York Giants’ top wideout wants to play on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, he will have to pass one final exam today.
"I guess waking up in the morning and seeing how it feels (will be key)," Nicks said. "I guess they’ll let me know something in the morning. So far, it’s passed every test."
Nicks went through a limited practice on Friday, the second straight day that he has run around and challenged his hamstring, and he said the workout "turned out pretty good."
However, he has still been very cautious with the injury. Nicks said he was operating at "a little more than 50%" on Friday. One day after doing only individual drills, he ran downfield, taxing his hamstring a little bit more.
All signs have been pointing towards Nicks playing on Sunday, but if he's not at full strength, you might be better off going with someone who is. Today's test should tell us more about where he's at.
