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.
