Hakeem Nicks Status Update: Giants WR Out Vs. Patriots

The New York Giants will be without wide receiver Hakeem Nicks against the New England Patriots, dealing with a hamstring injury. Nicks is a big loss for a Giants offense that will be missing their starting center and running back Ahmad Bradshaw. Nicks has nearly 600 receiving yards this year and would likely have a field day against the Patriots awful pass defense.

Without Hicks in the line-up, expect Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham to get a lot of looks their direction. Cruz has finally translated his preseasons success to the regular season. Manningham on the other hand has been hot and cold this season. If you're looking for a HIcks replacement, Victor Cruz is your best bet this week.
