Hakeem Nicks injury: Giants WR will practice on Tuesday

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Nicks has sat out of recent training camp sessions with groin tightness.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks told WFAN 660 on Tuesday morning that his groin is now "100 percent" and that he will join the team's training camp session on Tuesday afternoon, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Nicks, 25, had groin tightness that caused him to miss time, although he downplayed the seriousness of the injury and said he'd play with the problem if it were the regular season. In 2012, Nicks dealt with nagging foot and knee injuries that were cause for the worst season of his four-year career with the Giants.

Entering the final season of the five-year, $12.54 million contract he signed as a rookie, Nicks is looking for a big season in a contract year.

With the Giants scheduled to kickoff their 2013 preseason with a road game on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, it wouldn't be surprising if the team elected to keep Nicks out of the lineup as a precaution.
