Nicks spoke to reporters after practice. He was asked how he felt after today's workout:"I feel good and I’m ready to play," he told reporters. "Big game. We need it. Focused on playing team ball and get the job done."
Each week you’ve been saying you feel a little bit more like yourself. Is that still the case? Yeah. That’s definitely still the case. I feel real good actually right now. This week… I had a good practice today, yesterday as well. The legs are feeling pretty good, so I’m looking forward to playing.
Do you think practicing less this week was beneficial for you?Yeah. It’s definitely been beneficial. They always do a good job of resting me at the right time and then turning me on. This time of the season, we know what’s at stake. It’s just we do what we’ve got to do to be ready to play in the game.
Did you do a lot these past couple of weeks?Not really. I kind of just have been doing the same. A few reps every period, plays that I need to make sure I need to be in there with me and Eli getting down and just little stuff like that trying to take advantage of.
Coughlin on Boley: "It (back pain) started right away, I think it was Wednesday morning, but he’s fine. I think he’ll be fine."
Perry Fewell said Jayron Hosley will start if Prince is out. Big Sunday for the two Va. Tech rookies -- David Wilson and Jayron.

David Wilson is not only going to be the starting RB Sunday, he's also going to remain the KO returner, per Coughlin.
