Domenik Hixon returned to practice Thursday for the New York Giants, according to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. Hixon sat out last week's win over the Green Bay Packers with an ankle injury. He initially suffered the injury in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Hixon's numbers have been in steady decline since hauling in six receptions for 114 yards in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was held without a reception on just one target in 18 snaps in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fantasy Impact: It sounds like Hixon will be able to suit up for Monday night's game against the Washington Redskins, but after a big Week 4 prompting a flurry of waiver wire activity, he simply hasn't been fantasy relevant this season. While a bad Redskins secondary should be a prime matchup, you should leave Hixon on your bench, or on waivers altogether this week.
