Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks said his plan of playing it safe in the offseason and preseason has paid off. He's ready for the season opener and says he will be at full speed.
"I definitely feel like I am as good as I can be at this point," he said. "It is game time now. Everything counts. It’s time to get it."
"Definitely benefited from it," Nicks added of his plan after laboring through knee and foot injuries last season. "Same time, it helped me get to this point to where my body feels the best it has felt in a long time."
Nicks is not listed on the team's injury report, but his lackluster performance in the preseason is somewhat worrisome. Consider him a WR2 until we see him perform at a high level.
