New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will return to practice on Thursday, coach Tom Coughlin said on Wednesday. Nicks missed last weekend's game because of a foot injury but has said he should be ready to go for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nicks has been getting days off from practice during the season to rest his foot.
Fantasy Impact: The Giants have a plan for Nicks, who turned in a huge fantasy day in Week 2 before sitting out the Week 3 win over the Panthers. If Nicks had been able to get regular rest before the Carolina game, he probably would have played. Fantasy owners should be able to use Nicks with more confidence this week. Ramses Barden, who started in place of Nicks against Carolina, should go back to having a more limited role.
