EAST RUTHERFORD — The New York Giants may be without wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nicks, who missed a win over Carolina Sept. 19 with a sore foot, now has a knee problem.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Nicks developed swelling in his left knee after working out on Thursday. It was his first and only expected practice for the game. He was listed as doubtful for the contest between the NFC East rivals, meaning he has a 25 percent chance of playing.

If Nicks can't go, the Giants could start either Domenik Hixon or Ramses Barden. The latter picked up the start vs. Carolina and had career-bests of nine catches and 138 yards.
