Hakeem Nicks, 12.10.10

Q: How are you feeling?

A: They still have me as questionable right now.

Q: What do you think?

A: I think I'm good, but it's their decision at the end of the day. I guess I'll know tomorrow when I come in. I keep telling them the same stuff every day.

Q: What more do you have to prove?

A: I guess it's just decision making now. The numbers and everything. We'll see.

Q: Is there anything you didn't get to do to test it out?

A: No. Everything was pretty good. Originally, the doctors had me at three weeks so I think they're deciding to cut the three weeks short. I'm just waiting on the decision now.

Q: You going to meet with the doctor tomorrow?

A: At least when I come in, the trainers will have an answer for me.

Q: How does it feel with half the stitches in right now?

A: I actually don't even notice it. Honestly, I don't notice it.

Q: What have the injuries taught you guys about the depth at wide receiver?

A: We have to see from the business side, a business standpoint. How you bring people in and see people come and go. It lets us know that the receiving corps is strong, they kept it going. Hopefully we can get back out there now and keep winning.

Q: How much have you and Steve Smith helped get the new receivers acclimated?

A: I think those guys are more self-motivated. They came in and they knew the opportunity was at stake for him. Those guys came in, worked hard, stayed extra after film and catching up with the film and stuff.

Q: Considering how important these games are for you guys, would it be hard to sit out another game?

A: Oh yeah, it'll be tough. Each game means something at this point, so missing games doesn't sit well with me.

Q: How has the injury thrown off your timing and not being out there with Eli every day?

A: I think we'll be fine. I think we'll be fine. Eli knows that if he puts the ball out there, we'll go out there and make a play.

Q: How important is what the offensive line is doing as far as opening up the run game and getting single coverage for you guys?

A: I think everything works hand-in-hand. It all starts with the o-line. The o-linemen do their job up front, and I know the running backs are going to hit the holes and do what they do. It's up to us receivers in the passing game to hold it down.

Q: Mentally, how is this team different than the one that got blown out last year?

A: I think we're just over that. We're past that. We know what we want to do. We want to play football deep in the season and we want to win games. That's our plan.

Q: Any explanation on how the injury happened or was it just a freak thing?

A: I think it was just a freak thing that happened. I don't remember getting hit or anything. It just kind of happened.
