New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will not play in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles after developing swelling in his knee, reports NFL.com.

Nicks won’t travel with the team. The injury occurred when he hit the ground trying to make a catch in the Giants’ Week 2 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Though the team hasn’t specified, it’s believed the swelling is in Nicks’ left knee. He’s also dealing with lingering soreness in his surgically repaired right foot.

Ramses Barden will fill in for Nicks. Barden had nine catches for 138 yards in the Giants victory in Week 3 over the Carolina Panthers.

One wide receiver for the Giants (out of six on the roster) isn't going to play, and it's FRONT PAGE NEWS on Sports Illustrated. The Chargers' place kicker (the only one) is hurt and they sign a replacement for this Sunday's game, and...*crickets*.

Gotta LOVE the East Coast bias.
