Hakeem Nicks did not practice today, but he did do some running on the side and even cranked it up to full speed.

“It felt good,” said the receiver who missed Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury. “Going to stick to the plan of more and more each day. Tomorrow I’ll do a little bit more. No setbacks, and that’s always a good sign.”

Nicks said he also did some cutting. “Just to test it out and see where I’m at.” He said he expects to participate in some individual drills tomorrow.

“Hopefully by the end of the week everything’s going good and still looking good for me,” he said.

As for now, Nicks said it was a relief to him that he was able to run full speed, especially since he noted that the hamstring isn’t really bothering him and that any discomfort is “probably more of a mind thing.”

“It definitely let me know that I’m at least making progress,” he said of his exercises today. “Just have to keep taking care of it, being smart. We don’t want any setbacks at this point in time in the season.”
