Coach Tom Coughlin said Hakeem Nicks (abdominal) didn't play in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys because he didn't practice in full this week.Nicks was a limited participant in practice on Thursday and Friday after getting his abdominal strain checked out Wednesday. Of course, players that are limited in practice play on Sundays all the time -- even for Coughlin. It has raised some eyebrows in New York as there appears to be more than meets the eye here. Nicks declined to say anything as he walked out of the locker room Sunday with sunglasses on and hood up. Rueben Randle had three catches for 64 yards while making his first start of the season.
Peyton Hillis was a healthy scratch for the second straight game in Week 12 against Dallas.Hillis has fallen to fourth on the running back depth chart, as Brandon Jacobs is starter Andre Brown's primary complementary back, and Michael Cox is now active to return kickoffs. Hillis can be dropped in 14-team leagues.
