Receiver Hakeem Nicks, who missed last week’s game with Dallas, practiced fully and is probable for the game.

Pierre-Paul, the NFC defensive player of the week after a clinching interception return against Green Bay earlier this month, reinjured his shoulder. He took 24 snaps against Dallas and did not practice this week. Mathias Kiwanuka will start for him.
