NFL - Nicks breaks foot, out for three months
Powerful New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is expected to be sidelined for three months after breaking his right foot in practice.
Nicks fractured the fifth metatarsal while performing individual drills during an organised team activity workout earlier on Thursday.
The 24-year-old was scheduled to have surgery on Friday to have a screw inserted into the broken bone with an expected recovery time of 12 weeks, the team said on their website.
The Super Bowl champion Giants were schedule to have a total of nine organized team activities before a mandatory mini-camp on June 12-14. The team would then report to training camp at the University at Albany on July 26.
