New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been downgraded from questionable to out for Thursday night's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to the Giants' official twitter account. Nicks did not make the trip with the team to Carolina.
However, during the course of the game Nicks went down and appeared to be injured on two separate occasions, which raised questions about the status of his surgically repaired right foot. Following the game, Nicks stated he felt good.
Via ESPN New York:
"It's good," Nicks said. "It's pretty much what I expected after a long game, a big game like this."
