Hakeem Nicks missed a second straight practice but said he will be "full-go" by the time the team gets to Indianapolis.

Nicks said his right shoulder is "doing better, getting better day to day. It's still a little sore, but once I start working it throughout the day, it loosens up a little bit.'' He said he sprained his AC joint when he landed on the shoulder last Sunday. He returned to the game but has not practiced since.

"We wanted to use these couple of days to get it back right and rehab it a little bit," he said. "It was painful. I landed right on the AC joint that I've injured a few times this season. I kind of landed right on the top of it but went in, got it taken care of and by halftime I was cool."

The other injury the Giants are monitoring closely is LB Jacquian Williams' sprained right foot. He also missed two practices this week and was in a large protective boot in the locker room. Williams called the injury "something that snuck up on me" and added, "Nothing serious. I'll be ready for the game."

CB Will Blackmon (knee) and CB Corey Webster (hamstring) did not practice, either. Both are expected to play.



Rolle and NBC commentator Cris Collinsworth shared a warm chat during Friday's practice just a few weeks after they feuded over Collinsworth's portrayal of Rolle being "barbecued" on a Dez Bryant touchdown. "We're cool," Rolle said. "I said what I said, he said what he said, it's over with. We're both men. We can take it." . . . RB Brandon Jacobs' advice for first-time Super Bowl players: "Keep calm. Don't blow a gasket, because a lot of guys get excited too early and the game doesn't start for at least 20 minutes after you're out there." . . . RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), C David Baas (neck) and LB Chase Blackburn (calf) were limited in practice.
