Nicks missed the majority of the preseason due to a broken bone in his foot, which was sustained over the offseason.
Head coach Tom Coughlin stated that the team was going to have to work around the injury and manage it the best they could. Nicks has consistently stated that he intends to play against the Cowboys in Week 1, however, he understands that he needs to listen to the team's training staff.

"I know it's for the better. I know they just want to take care of my foot. We don't want any setbacks," Nicks said.
The 24-year-old receiver managed to play in the team's final preseason game against the New England Patriots, where he recorded one catch for six yards.
