New York Giants wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Domenik Hixon are both expected to resume practicing this week, according to Ralph Vacchiano of The New York Daily News. Nicks didn't make last week's trip to face the Carolina Panthers because of a foot injury but is scheduled to practice on Thursday. Hixon, meanwhile, missed the game because of a concussion but has been cleared to resume practicing. Hixon could be back on the field as soon as Wednesday.
Fantasy Impact: The passing game for the Giants looked pretty good on Thursday, so defenses probably won't be too excited to hear that Nicks and Hixon will soon be back at practice. Nicks got some rest after turning in a 199-yard effort in Week 2 and fantasy owners will want him back soon. Hixon is less of a fantasy factor and could lose snaps to Ramses Barden, who had nine catches for 138 yards against Carolina.
