Giants WR star Nicks to miss Thursday's game against Panthers

CBSSports.com wire reports

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants will be without NFC offensive player of the week Hakeem Nicks for Thursday's game against the Carolina Panthers (1-1).

Nicks, a wide receiver, has a foot injury, adding to the list of absentees when the Super Bowl-champion Giants (1-1) play their first road game of the season. New York made the announcement late Wednesday afternoon after already labeling running back Ahmad Bradshaw, offensive tackle David Diehl and another receiver, Domenik Hixon, out as well.

Nicks did not practice this week, but hasn't practiced much since sitting out almost all of training camp while recovering from a broken foot suffered in May. In the initial injury report Wednesday, rookie defensive end Adewale Ojomo also was listed as out.

Bradshaw (neck), Diehl (knee) and Hixon (concussion) were hurt in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay and did not practice this week.
