Giants Wide Receiver Says He'll Practice Tuesday

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Hakeem Nicks is ready to get back on the practice field.

The New York Giants wide receiver, sidelined with a strained groin, declared himself “good to go” on WFAN radio Tuesday.

“I’m 100 percent, man,” Nicks told Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, who were broadcasting live from Giants camp. “I’m good to go.”

Nicks said he would practice with the team Tuesday, but wasn’t sure about his availability for Saturday’s preseason opener in Pittsburgh.

“As far as the game goes, I’m not sure what the coaching staff and the trainers are deciding right now,” he said. “I’m as healthy as I can be right now. I’m gonna get back out there today and go out there and just practice.”

Esiason asked Nicks, who was hampered by foot and knee injuries last year, about the perception that coach Tom Coughlin “is always on your a–.”

“It seems right, but I know he just wants the best out of me,” Nicks said. “He’s just going to bring the best out of me, that’s all.”
