EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Giants leading receiver Hakeem Nicks is likely to miss New York’s regular-season finale against the Washington Redskins with a broken big toe on his left foot.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin doubted that Nicks would be able to play Sunday when asked about the injury at his news conference Wednesday.
The coach also said that Pro Bowl center Shaun O’Hara aggravated the Achilles’ tendon condition in his left leg in the 45-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
The Giants (9-6) need to beat or tie the Redskins in Washington and have the Packers (9-6) lose to Chicago in Green Bay to make the playoffs. A Giants tie, Green Bay loss and Tampa Bay loss also would get New York to the postseason.
