Giants' Nicks sits out practice, but expects to play

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks sat out Sunday's practice, but insists he'll play in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

"I'm playing. You don't have to ask me the question. I'm playing,'' Nicks said Sunday, according to the New York Post.

Nicks has been recovering from a broken foot that required surgery, and coach Tom Coughlin said the foot was a little sore on Sunday.

Coughlin expects him to practice Monday, though.

"I would think so," Coughlin said. "He looked like once he got out here and he was moving around on the grass, he looked a little friskier."
