EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The New York Giants will be without wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team said Saturday that Nicks will miss the game because of a knee problem and won’t make the trip to Philadelphia. He previously missed a Sept. 19 victory against Carolina with a sore foot.
Coach Tom Coughlin has said Nicks developed swelling in his left knee after working out Thursday. It was his only expected practice for the game.
Nicks banged his knee making a catch against Tampa Bay.
BRONCOS: Second-year safety Quinton Carter needs another surgery on his left knee and is done for the season. The team placed him on injured reserve.
PATRIOTS: The team signed offensive lineman Matt Tennant.
Tennant was with the team earlier in September after being cut by New Orleans near the end of training camp.
BEARS: Running back Matt Forte is questionable for the Monday night game at Dallas because of a sprained right ankle.
RAIDERS: Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and tight end Richard Gordon will miss Sunday’s game at Denver with injuries.
CHARGERS: San Diego signed kicker Nick Novak to replace Nate Kaeding for Sunday’s game at Kansas City.
