Hakeem Nicks skipped first OTA practice

NY Daily News - [Full Article]

There were two conspicuous no-shows to the Giants’ first on-field OTA of the offseason on Wednesday. And only one of them had a good explanation.

Nobody – not Tom Coughlin or Eli Manning or any other Giants player – expected Victor Cruz to show up as he continues to battle with the team over a long-term contract extension. But fellow wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was supposed to be in uniform and on the field, working with “limitations” according to Coughlin.

Instead, the receiver pulled a stunning disappearing act, with absolutely no explanation.

“I don’t know,” Coughlin said, when asked why Nicks wasn’t at the practice facility. “He should be here . . . I expect everybody here. We’re trying to get our team better.”

Fantasy Impact: 

There are mixed reports about why Nicks missed practice. He may or may not be upset about his contract. Stay tuned.
