Nicks caught a pass over the middle and braced for contact a little early, but the outing has to be considered a big success.
"It felt real good to be out there for the first time this preseason," Nicks said during a sideline interview. "Went out there, got my feet wet, got a couple reps.
"It was exactly what I needed to know that I'll be ready for next week. It was pretty much what I expected. No problem with the foot. It felt good, and I'll be ready to start the season."
