The New York Giants have ruled wide receiver Hakeem Nicks out for Sunday’s game and he will not travel with the team to Philadelphia.
Nicks has swelling in his knee, according to NFL.com, and that has plagued him since he hit the turf in Week 2. Nicks did not play last week and will be replaced by Ramses Barden.
Nicks has been dealing with foot issues too following surgery in the summer but the knee issue is what has him on the shelf right now.
