"I don't feel frustrated at all," Nicks said, via the New York Post. "It's only the second week of camp. Just being smart. I'll be back out there in a day or two. ... I'm just trying to protect myself from myself. I'm so competitive. (This is) something I would have pushed myself and pushed myself through last season."
In light of his injury history, Nicks can't be blamed for protecting his body in a contract season. At the same time, the Giants no longer can count on their No. 1 receiver to stay healthy for 16 games. Fortunately, the Giants' No. 3 receiver, Rueben Randle, has dominated training camp with Nicks on the sidelines.
