Giants WR Hakeem Nicks Says Swelling Is Gone And He'll Play Against Bengals

Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks returned to practice on Thursday, after sitting with a swollen knee during Wednesday's session.

Nicks told Paul Schwartz with the NY Post that the swelling is gone and that he intends to play this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Yeah I'll play," said Nicks. "[Resting until after the bye] was never a thought, at least not on my behalf." After a little early-week "puffiness," the swelling in Nicks' knee has subsided. The receiver has been told by the medical staff that he's running better every week. Of his disappointing fantasy production of late, Nicks replied, "Stats are for girls."
