And that just might give an old star receiver a chance to rekindle the magic he had in his first go-round in East Rutherford. With Beckham almost certain to sit out on Sunday, Hakeem Nicks seems likely to assume his role.
Nicks, who was signed in mid-November, has gradually seen his snap count increase, and in last Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, while Beckham was running wild, Nicks was playing a season-high 37 snaps and functioning as the Giants’ third receiver. He could find himself starting and playing opposite Rueben Randle against the Vikings.
While Dwayne Harris would seem like the next man up as the team's WR2 opposite of Randle, the story said Harris is dealing with a shoulder injury.
