Nicks was downgraded to out on the team's injury report Saturday, a day after the team said Nicks developed swelling in his knee. Nicks won't travel with the Giants on Sunday when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Giants decided Nicks wasn't ready on Thursday after he attempted to do some running for the first time since Week 2. Though the team hasn't specified, it's believed the swelling is in Nicks' left knee. He's also dealing with lingering soreness in his surgically repaired right foot.
