Hakeem Nicks told the Daily News on Monday he’ll practice with his teammates on Tuesday and that he’s “healed up healthy” and ready to roll for the Giants’ preseason opener at Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Nicks has been limited since tweaking his groin on the second day of Giants camp on July 28 and on Sunday did what has seemingly become his new summer workout plan: ride a stationary bike on the sidelines while his teammates practiced on the field.
“Everything is going the way it’s supposed to” Nicks said. “I’m feeling real good. Everything is right on schedule.”
With the Giants off on Monday Nicks was at MetLife Stadium doing a photo shoot for New Era’s “Speak With Your Cap” campaign.
Donning a royal blue Giants uniform with a matching fitted cap — facing straight and tilted to the side — Nicks joked about bringing “hat swag” into the locker room this season. He also took a playful jab at his quarterback Eli Manning when asked if the two-time Super Bowl MVP would adopt said “hat swag.”
