NEW YORK (WFAN) - Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks broke a bone in his right foot at OTA’s on Thursday, and will be on the shelf for approximately 12 weeks, the team has confirmed.

The 2009 first-round pick of the Giants will undergo surgery on Friday to have a screw inserted in his right foot, The Record of Bergen County reported. He was injured running a route during drills.

The 24-year-old was excellent for the Giants in their Super Bowl-winning campaign this past season, further establishing himself as a prime weapon for quarterback Eli Manning. Nicks compiled his second consecutive 1,000+ yard receiving season (1,192 yards), caught 76 passes and found the end zone seven times.

He was also brilliant in the postseason, capping it off with a tremendous performance in Super Bowl XLVI against the Patriots. In the game of all games, Nicks shined from the outset, catching 10 passes for 109 yards.

Assuming that there are no complications with the six-foot-one, 208-pounder’s surgery and rehabilitation process, he should return by mid-August and be ready for the start of the regular season.

Looks like he should be good to go for opening kickoff, but definitely not good news for the G-Men. Sound off with your thoughts and comments below…
