Nicks, Bradshaw on field Friday

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and running back Ahmad Bradshaw both were practicing during the portion open to the media on Friday. Nicks did not practice Thursday with a sore left knee, while Bradshaw is on his regular once-per-week practice schedule because of his foot.

Safety Kenny Phillips (knee) was in the stationary bike area and it looks like he will miss his third straight practice, making it highly doubtful he will play against the Saints. Phillips re-aggravated his knee injury against the Packers and was used sparingly against the Redskins.

Linebacker Jacquian Williams was working Friday, and that would give him a full week of practice, as he looks to return to the field for the first time since he injured his knee against the 49ers on Oct. 14. He's the fastest linebacker on the team, and his speed has been missed.

Safety Tyler Sash (hamstring) and tight end Travis Beckum (knee) were not practicing.
