Hakeem Nicks is still not running at full speed, but the Giants are not limiting him much on the field. Despite coming of knee surgery, Nicks was participating in practice and drill for a second straight day at minicamp. He even ran a go route, although the ball was overthrown and Nicks did not exactly burst to try to catch up to it.

Still, there’s no babying him on the part of the Giants.

“We knew exactly how much yardage he had and so we bumped it up a little today, but not too much,” Tom Coughlin said. “He got a good opportunity here again today and we’ll see, maybe a little bit more tomorrow.”
