Good morning, New York Giants fans! This is sort of a 'something old is new again' edition of your morning notebook. I haven't used the helmets as separators in years now, but in the spirit of experimentation let's break them out and see how this works.
Hakeem Nicks caught four passes for 38 yards Wednesday in the season opener vs. the Dallas Cowboys, returning as he promised he would despite breaking his foot during the offseason.
"I came out pretty good, a little sore afterwards as we expected," Nicks said. "I feel like once I get in the swing of things, I could do a little more. Right now, it’s been a short training camp for me. Limited myself on the field and not being able to practice as much as I want to, but it’s a matter of maintaining and not prolonging this foot injury, so I’m all for that. I’m sure I’ll be myself here in about another game or two, but it’s just a matter of me playing and getting through it.
"You’ve just got to hold the ball high and tight and keep it up and it happens to best of them and it’s something I know that can’t happen," Wilson said. "The coaches said just have a good week of practice and fight back. I don’t think they totally gave up on me. It was just in that moment and the opening game and me having a critical moment like that at the beginning, they didn’t want me in there."
INJURY NOTES: Cornerback Prince Amukamara (high ankle sprain) is still targeting a Week 2 return against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Amukamara, however, said he has not run since suffering the injury and said he won't "anytime soon." ... Michael Coe said he is "feeling pretty good" after leaving Wednesday's game a hamstring injury and is not sure if he will miss any time.
