Hakeem Nicks: “I feel healthy”
Although various injuries caused Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks to miss three games last year, Nicks says he feels "healthy" and has added some weight in the off-season.
“I’ve put on a little bit more muscle weight. I’ve just been training,” Nicks said today, per Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. “A month after the season I got right back into it. I’ve been training ever since.”
“I feel healthy,” said Nicks. “I feel like I could go right now if we needed to.”
Despite missing three games, Nicks led the team in receptions (79), receiving yards (1,052) and receiving touchdowns (11) in 2010.
Nicks, the team's first-round pick in 2009, had 47 receptions for 790 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season.
Based on average draft position from Mock Draft Central, Nicks is the fourth receiver and 18th player off the board in fantasy football mock drafts.
