New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks participated in practice on Thursday, a day after sitting out because of swelling in his knee. Nicks took part in the offensive walk-through and ran routes in one-on-one drills during the portion of practice open to the media. Coach Tom Coughlin said after practice that Nicks was limited but that the swelling in the knee had gone down.
Nicks had finally made his way off the injury report ahead of last weekend's game with the Pittsburgh Steelers but was right back on it Wednesday. He missed three games earlier this season because of a knee injury after starting the season with an injured foot.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners have to be somewhat encouraged for Week 10. Nicks had a lousy fantasy game last weekend but should have a better one this week against Cincinnati if he's active.
Owners will want to see how Nicks is listed on the Friday injury report but, for now, consider him a low-end No. 2 fantasy option for Week 10.
