HAKEEM NICKS SUFFERED FRACTURE AND UNDERWENT KNEE SURGERY
Wed, 30 May 2012 03:52 AM EDT

N.Y Giants WR Hakeem Nicks broke the 5th metatarsal of his right foot last Thursday morning while running a route in the Giants’ organized team activity in East Rutherford, N.J. After last offseason and the flurry of devastating injuries that tormented 1 or 2 key players like Jonathon Goff, Prince Amukamara and Osi Umenyoira, one can’t help but to get nervous that a repeat could be in store this offseason.

Manifestly, nobody wants to see such great talents like Nicks get hurt; but his absence will give other members of the Giants’ young receiving core an opportunity to get more reps in practice and more experience in preseason games.

He had surgery Friday and the rough predicted recovery time for the injury is 12 weeks, reports related that Nicks had a screw inserted in the foot during the process performed by noted foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C. Source confirmed.

The 24-year-old Nicks is coming off a career season for the defending Super Bowl champs, catching 76 catches for a career-best 1,192 yards and seven touchdowns for the Giants last season. In 3 NFL seasons, the North Carolina product has 202 catches for 3,034 yards and 24 TDs.

It is the 2nd major injury the Giants have suffered in a couple of days of OTAs. Last Wednesday, cornerback Brian Witherspoon reinjured his ACL and was carted off the field. Witherspoon was surrendered and the team signed defensive back Dante Hughes to replace him.

In 2010, Nicks missed the last 4 games of the season with a damaged toe in his left foot.

The 5th metatarsal generally carry a long time to heal because there isn’t a lot of blood flow to the area.

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez was restricted to 5 games this past NBA season after breaking his 5th metatarsal in training camp. He returned after missing 33 games of the league’s shortened season, and then twisted an ankle on the same foot and never came back.

Cornerback Prince Amukamara, the NY Giants’ 1st-round draft pick in 2011, broke his 5th metatarsal in training camp on Aug. 6. He did not play in a game till Nov. 20 and he never looked 100% in his rookie season as the N.Y Giants won a Super Bowl.

The Giants are booked to open training camp at the University at Albany on July 26, and their 1st regular season game is Sept. 5 against the Dallas Cowboys. If Nicks hasn’t got any problems, he could come back just before the season opener.

Nicks’s injury increases the stress on a number of players, including Victor Cruz, set to make $540,000 this season, to replenish his push for a new deal. The N.Y Giants could look to Rueben Randle, their 2nd-round draft pick this year, for an instant effect. Returning players like Domenik Hixon, Jerrel Jernigan and Ramses Barden may be spotlighted.
