EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is going to miss the New York Giants' must-win game against the Dallas Cowboys with an abdominal injury.

Nicks was limited at practice on Friday and was listed as questionable for the game. The fifth-year wide receiver has 42 catches for 620 yards, but he has not caught a touchdown.

Rueben Randle, who leads the Giants with six touchdown catches, replaced him in the starting lineup.

Also inactive for the Giants were running back Peyton Hillis and cornerback Corey Webster, who has missed the past couple of weeks with groin and ankle injuries.

The Cowboys had no surprises among their inactives as linebackers Sean Lee, Justin Durant and DeVonte Holloman were ruled out on Friday.
