New York Giants' Hakeem Nicks expects to be ready for training camp

Hakeem Nicks - Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Nicks suffered through an injury-plagued 2012 season, but expects to be fully healthy when training camp starts this summer.

Hakeem Nicks told reporters on Thursday that his "confidence is extremely high" that he will be ready to participate fully when the New York Giants open training camp at the end of July.

Nicks suffered a broken foot during off-season workouts a season ago, and then dealt with a knee injury most of the season. He had knee surgery this off-season after catching only 53 passes in 2012, something he called a "little minor procedure."

"My body is feeling good," Nicks said. "I’m looking at the bigger picture right now. My goal is to be full go by training camp. So this time that I have now I’m using to get myself back in football shape and football conditioning because it’s been a while.

Nicks said that his "foot has been fine for a while. I think my main issue last year was mainly the knee, but I think that’s fine now."

He was asked if there were times last season when he played when he should not have.

"You can look at that and say that now, but when you’re going through the situation it’s a lot harder especially when you’re competitive like the way I am," Nicks said. "I knew what I was going through. Nobody knew what I was going though but me, but I felt like I came out better than the average person would in that position. So I feel like I was blessed to come out the way I did. It could have been worse. I fought through it. I did it for my team. It taught me some things. I learned a lot of things from myself. I just take it in stride and continue with my career."
