Sam SpiegelmanGiants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not participate or even attend organized team activities Wednesday.
Tom Coughlin told the media Nicks “should be here,” despite the sessions being voluntary.
Nicks is recovering from a knee scope and a 2012 campaigned plagued by both knee and foot injuries, which resulted in career lows in both yardage and touchdown receptions.
The Giants head coach added Nicks could have worked with some “limitations” in order to protect his knee from any setbacks.
Earlier today, I wrote about how Nicks’ recovery — especially given the slow progress of the Victor Cruz contract negotiations — is critical to the success of the Giants’ offense in 2013.
