Hakeem Nicks Active For Giants Vs. Cowboys

The inactives for the New York Giants has been released, and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will play in Wednesday's season-opening contest against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium.

Nicks, who has been battling an injured foot, was not on the list that featured seven Giants' players -- wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, cornerback Prince Amukamara, running back Da'Rel Scott, offensive lineman Mitch Petrus, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, tackle James Brewer and defensive tackle Marvin Austin.

The absence of Austin, Brewer and Amukamara are not a surprise as all three were listed as "out" in Tuesday's injury report.

Meanwhile, Tuesday's key players that were listed as questionable -- linebackers Michael Boley (hamstring) and Mathias Kiwanuka -- will give it a go.
