Giants WR Hakeem Nicks Says Injured Knee Needed 6-8 Weeks Of Rest
Hakeem Nicks was still recovering from foot surgery when he slammed his left knee to the Meadowlands turf late in the Giants’ Week 2 game against Tampa Bay. He was sure it was only “something minor” though until it was still swollen two weeks later.
Then he had an MRI that showed “something” was torn. And the doctors told him he really needed 6-8 weeks of rest.
Two weeks later, though, the Giants’ top receiver was back on the field after missing only three games, and dealing with an injury that never really went away.
“It was just a situation where I was gutting it out,” Nicks said on Monday. “I wanted to play for the team and for myself. It was a situation where I felt if I was sitting I would’ve been miserable, so I felt that if I was out there trying to give it whatever I had, everything would work out.”
