Before last night’s preseason game between the Giants and the Bears, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was seen fully dressed and on the field during warm ups. There was some confusion among the local media because he was listed as being inactive and looked like he was going to play.
Bob Glauber of Newsday indicated that it looks like the Giants are just getting Nicks ready for the season opener.
Per Giants’ official, Hakeem Nicks is NOT playing. Bottom line is they’re getting him ready for Game 1 of reg. season. All systems go w that

My guess would be that the Giants activate Nicks for their final preseason game in order to get him some reps.
