EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) is active despite missing practice time. New York welcomes back linebacker Jacquian Williams for the first time since injuring a knee in mid-October against San Francisco.

Giants safety Kenny Phillips is inactive due to a knee injury that he aggravated two weeks ago. He played a limited role last week against Washington.

New Orleans Saints backup running back Chris Ivory is inactive for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants with a hamstring injury.

Ivory was hurt late this week in practice and was not listed on the Saints’ injury report until Saturday.

Will Nicks have a big game against the Saints?  Let’s hear your thoughts, Giants fans…
