Nicks Injured But Doesn’t Expect To Be Held Back

September 10th, 2012

Carl Nicks’ size 18 shoes are feeling a little snug this morning, as one of Nicks’ toes was nearly double the size of its opposite-foot counterpart last night after the Bucs-Panthers game. 

(Out of respect for Greg Schiano’s desire to keep injury specifics top secret, Joe will not reveal the location of the afflicted toe or provide any hints to its whereabouts.)

Nicks headed for an X-ray right after the game but everything seems OK aside from the massive swelling, Nicks told

Nicks said he didn’t know how the injury occurred and he doesn’t expect to miss any playing time.

    Ugh! Hope this doesn’t affect his ‘push off’ ~ also, sounds like he should wear steel tip shoes next game (as a bonus it’s a tax write off ~ not that he needs it).

    Stay healthy big guy. We can’t afford to lose two pro bowl guards.

  3. Bobby Says:

    Need Nicks healthy for the Giants game. Ice that toe big man!
