Hakeem Nicks is good to go

ARLINGTON, Texas -- New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who missed most of last week's practices with a hamstring issue, is active for tonight's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Nicks told reporters all week that he planned to play, but he was limited in practice Saturday.

Nicks has emerged as the Giants' most explosive receiver and it's likely that he'll test Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins early in this game. Here are the other inactives for the Giants and Cowboys:

Giants: DB D.J. Johnson, FB Madison Hedgecock, LB Phillip Dillard, G Mitch Petrus, T Will Beatty, T Jamon Meredith, DE Mathias Kiwanuka, DT Linval Joseph.

Cowboys: QB Stephen McGee, LB Leon Williams, LB Jason Williams, G Kyle Kosier, T Sam Young, T Jermey Parnell, WR Kevin Ogletree, DE Sean Lissemore
