Waiting for Nicks' MRI results

Here's the problem with getting hurt on one of the last plays of an afternoon practice: It takes a while to get a good diagnosis.

Hakeem Nicks, who injured his knee while running a crossing pattern through the end zone yesterday, had an MRI taken last night. But Giants doctors were unable to examine him or the images from the test until this morning. It's around 8:30 a.m. as I write this so they very well might already have a diagnosis that has not slipped through the cracks to me just yet. BUt it sounds like we should have a good idea of the nature of the injury today and then have the Giants officially announce something on Thursday morning (although if it's bad news my guess is they'll get it out there a little quicker than that).

What's the vibe? Nicks got up and walked away, but so did Domenik Hixon and Jay Alford and Jason Sehorn and a list of others who ultimately had serious injuries that required season-ending surgery. Only the MRI can tell. So we wait.

In the meantime, here are some articles that we wrote for today's paper:

O'Hara's injury OK, but Giants await word on Nicks

Giants plan to vary pass coverages

Backup QB Sorgi has rough start at camp

Johnson: Steve who?

Glauber was also up here for a visit yesterday but wound up writing about two other teams and their quarterbacks: The Jets and the Vikings. I think he plans on writing about the Giants soon.

You can also check out Newsday's photo gallery from training camp. Lots of good shots in there. I thought this one of Ramses Barden snagging a ball away from Michael Johnson was particulary good. Let me know which one is your favorite.
