New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was a guest on Chris McClain and Jim Celania on WFNZ in Charlotte (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) and was asked if he’ll be ready for next month’s training camp after suffering a broken foot at the end of May.
“Definitely making training camp,” said Nicks. “I started running about two weeks [ago] but the coaches don’t really want me to force the issue right now so I still haven’t started running yet. They want me to just take my time with it — they feel like that’s what’s best. So right now I’m just taking my time with it. … But I’ll definitely be ready for the season.”
Nicks was asked if his foot is in a cast of walking boot.
“No, I’m not in nothing no more,” replied Nicks.
I’m sure the Giants aren’t worried about Nicks being ready for camp. I think they want to make sure he gets back to being 100% healthy for the regular season.
