NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – On Thursday, the New York Giants rolled over the Carolina Panthers with ease despite a number of major injuries.

As the Giants rest up and prepare for their battle with the Eagles on Sunday night, they’re getting a whole lot healthier.

WFAN Giants reporter Paul Dottino confirmed that Hakeem Nicks will practice Thursday and play Sunday in Philadelphia.  Nicks told reporters that it was “too quick of a turnaround” to play against the Panthers on Thursday and is “ready to go for Philly.”

“I definitely anticipate playing,” Nicks told the Giants’ official website.

Had Nicks been able to rest up over an entire week, he would have been ready for the Panthers.

Ahmad Bradshaw announced on Twitter that he’s ready to go on Sunday.

Bradshaw tweeted: “Great news! Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers. But you don’t understand, I’m Ready to rock #bigblue #health.”

In addition, Domenik Hixon has been cleared to resume practice.  Hixon has shaken off concussion symptoms.

Antrel Rolle received treatment for a minor knee injury.  Rolle collided with a sideline camera on Thursday.  Tom Coughlin told reporters that the injury isn’t serious.  Rolle is expected to play on Sunday.

Will the return of Nicks and Bradshaw give the Giants a major edge on Sunday?  Sound off below…
