Nicks broke his foot during the 2012 offseason and also suffered through knee problems, injuries that limited him to 53 receptions in 13 games. Coughlin said Nicks underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee "just to look it over."
The coach was more cryptic when it came to Baas, saying only that he had "a little surgery" and that it was "on his body."

The Star-Ledger reported that Baas underwent "multiple" procedures after suffering hand, elbow, ankle, hip and shoulder injuries. Despite his myriad of injuries Baas started all 16 games in 2012.
Coughlin also said there is no timetable for the return of right guard Chris Snee, who underwent hip surgery recently.
"He'll be back as fast as he can. I don't know if he'll do a whole lot in the spring," Coughlin said.
