WR Hakeem Nicks could begin running routes as early as Saturday according to SNY insider Mike Garafolo:
Here’s some good news: WR Hakeem Nicks told me he’ll start running routes on the side either Saturday or Monday. (The players are off on Sunday.) Nicks said it’ll likely be Monday because the training staff is trying to be cautious in handling his broken foot, though he was hoping to nudge them to “take this leash they have on me off” on Saturday.
Nicks estimates he’ll need another week-plus once he begins running routes to be ready for practice. So that puts him, as the Giants had been saying from the jump, in the range of a mid-month return.
