Nicks suffered a broken foot during organized team activities on May 24. "This is an indication that we're right where we should be," he said. "We're on schedule. There have been no setbacks. I'm just going to take it one step at a time and be out there catching passes from Eli (Manning) and eventually get our timing back." Under the rules of the collective bargaining agreement, he won't be able to practice in full pads for the first three days following his removal from the PUP list. This means his on-field work at training camp will be limited as the team breaks camp Wednesday. "I'm very excited about that," he said about returning. "They're letting me know that by the beginning of next week, I can start doing some stuff with the team; some individual and stuff like that. They still want me to take it slow and be smart about it. But I feel good about being out there progressing myself with the team slowly but surely." It looks safe at this point to assume he'll be ready for Week 1.
