New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks reveals that he is not too worried about his groin injury and missing the start of training camp.
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has revealed that he does not feel aggrieved to be missing training camp with a groin injury.
The 25-year-old has missed the start of his side's preparations for the new season, which head coach Tom Coughlin described as "frustrating".
Nicks told the New York Post: "I don't feel frustrated at all. It's only the second week of camp. Just being smart.
"I'll be back out there in a day or two. I'm just trying to protect myself from myself. I'm so competitive.
"[This is] something I would have pushed myself and pushed myself through last season."
Nicks made 53 receptions and scored three touchdowns in the 2012 season.
