Head coach Tom Coughlin was asked about Nicks in his presser this afternoon:
[sny-box]How close was Hakeem Nicks to playing on Sunday and did he fight you guys to play?A: No. Not really.
Do you expect him to be fine going forward this week?We’ll see. I really don’t have any other information to give you. He’s being treated and hopefully we’ll be able to see where he’s at come Wednesday.
Usually guys listed as questionable go out on the field and warm up. There was no thought in doing that with Hakeem?No.
Is there anything else going on with him?No.
He told us he’s been frustrated because of not scoring a touchdown.There’s a lot of frustration today.
He told us that he was going to play yesterday and that’s why we’re confused. How could those two things be happening at the same time?Because on Wednesday, as you’ve tracked it, he had an issue with the abdominal area. He thought it might have been a hernia. So he went through all the tests and then did not practice, was not able to practice. You asked me the question late in the week and I answer ‘what would be the issue?’ ‘Speed. He probably can’t be full speed.’
He said it later in the week that he thought he could play.You’ll have to ask him.
You were always kind of doubtful because he was unable to practice?That’s usually the way it is. Yeah.[/sny-box]
