In the Giants' first organized team activities session on Wednesday, Brian Witherspoon tore a knee ligament.
Today, in the second OTA, a much more integral player suffered a significant injury.
Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot while running a route and is expected to miss about 12 weeks, the team announced. Nicks will undergo surgery on Friday to have a screw inserted in the bone. Noted foot and ankle specialist Robert Anderson will perform the procedure in Charlotte, N.C.
The anticipated time frame for Nicks' recovery means he'll be out of action until mid-August, or about half of the preseason.
