Giants' Injury Report: Hakeem Nicks does, indeed, practice

Elsa

New York Giants' injury report for Wednesday, 11/27.

As New York Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin promised earlier on Wednesday, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did practice for the Giants during the afternoon. Nicks and cornerback Corey Webster, both inactive for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, practiced in limited fashion.

Brandon Jacobs (knee), Terrell Thomas (knee), Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and Trumaine McBride (groin) did not practice.

The Giants will have to shuffle their secondary in some fashion if McBride, the starter opposite Prince Amukamara, is unable to play. Coughlin said earlier Wednesday he was unsure how the Giants would replace McBride.

"We'll see how that goes. We're going to look at a bunch of guys today," Coughlin said.

Webster, the veteran who was the starter at the beginning of the season, is one option if he is healthy. Groin and ankle injuries have limited him to four games.

Second-year man Jayron Hosley is another option. Hosley has had hamstring issues much of the season and Coughlin didn't sound confident that Hosley has the endurance to play extended snaps. The Giants also have rookie Charles James, an undrafted free agent who played well during the preseason.

Coughlin also said the Giants will have to monitor Pierre-Paul shoulder injury the rest of the season and that it is "questionable" whether or not he will be completely healthy the rest of the way.
