Giants Injury/Fantasy Update for Week 13

Here are some Giants updates courtesy of, a partner of the Comcast SportsNet family:

Giants OC Kevin Gilbride acknowledges that Hakeem Nicks’ knee and foot injuries are still affecting him on the field.

Nicks is coming off a 5/77/1 line in last Sunday night’s win over the Packers, but failed to secure four attempts at end-zone fades. “Still not the same. Not himself, no,” Gilbride said. “He had a couple chances for plays. He would have made those plays easily (if healthy). Easily.” Gilbride does believe Nicks is “getting better, definitely,” and the Giants have taken steps to get Nicks more single coverage by using him more often in the slot.

Domenik Hixon (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Saturday and is officially listed as questionable for Monday night against the Redskins.

Hixon returned to practice this week and is shaping up as a game-time decision. If the Giants decide to hold him out, Ruben Randle will resume third receiver duties. David Diehl (shoulder) also practiced on a limited basis Saturday and is listed as questionable.

Giants RE Jason Pierre-Paul (back) missed practice on Saturday and is questionable for Monday night’s tilt with the Redskins.

JPP also sat out of practice on Friday. Despite the “questionable” tag, head coach Tom Coughlin was optimistic about his 23-year-old defensive end’s prospects of suiting up for Week 13. The task of containing Robert Griffin III would seem to be much tougher without Pierre-Paul in the lineup. Dec 1 – 3:55 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw (neck/ankle) put in a limited practice on Saturday and is officially listed as probable for Monday Night Football versus the Redskins.

Bradshaw hasn’t done much practicing over the past two months. After showing better burst in Week 12 against the Packers, and with Andre Brown’s broken leg, Bradshaw is a recommended RB2 this week against Washington. He checks in as Rotoworld’s No. 15 running back for Week 13.

Giants FS Kenny Phillips (knee) is officially listed as doubtful for Monday night versus the Redskins.
Phillips did not participate in practice on Saturday and has been battling knee issues all season. He suffered a setback last week but was still expected to give it a go in Week 13. Stevie Brown and Antrel Rolle will continue to handle safety duties.
