Hakeem Nicks out 12 Weeks...


Today Hakeem Nicks fractured the fifth metatarsal in right foot and is scheduled to have surgery on Friday.

Nicks will have surgery on Friday in Charlotte, N.C., where foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson will insert a screw into the broken bone. His recovery time is 12 weeks.

Yesterday, as reported here on GMenHq, the Giants lost CB Brian Witherspoon for the season and sub-sequentially waived him today. He is expected to miss the entire 2012 NFL season. Nicks however, may be back for the opening of the regular season for the Giants.
