Nicks apparently has swelling in his knee along with the lingering effects of a broken foot.

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was somewhat surprisingly listed as questionable Friday by the New York Giants for Sunday's key NFC East game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nicks, who missed last Thursday's game against the Carolina Panthers due to lingering issues with the foot he broke during the off season, apparently also has swelling in one of his knees.

Also for the Giants, offensive tackle David Diehl (knee), cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and linebacker Keith Rivers (hamstring) will not play Sunday.

Safety Antrel Rolle, dealing with the after effects of slamming his knee into a camera during the Carolina game, is listed as questionable. Cornerback Michael Coe is also questionable.

Nicks' injury likely means that Ramses Barden will start once again, coming off a nine-catch effort against Carolina. Wide reeceiver Domenik Hixon, who missed the Panthers' game with a concussion, is probable.
