New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been plagued with a knee injury since week four. The knee injury caused Nicks to miss two games and hampered him in last week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers where he was held to one catch.
Now, midway through the week, Nicks has suffered a setback.
Per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News:
WR Hakeem Nicks’ knee swelled up and he will not practice today. G Chris Snee (ankle) won’t practice. RB Andre Brown (shoulder) will. #NYG

There is no word on how this setback will play into Nicks’ status for the Giants week ten match up, but it is definitely something worth watching leading into New York’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
