EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants may finally have caught a break on the injury front.

Leading receiver Hakeem Nicks apparently only has a bone bruise on his left knee and is hopeful that he will be able to play on Monday night against the St. Louis Rams.

Nicks hurt the knee early in the first quarter on Sunday after making a 68-yard reception to set up Eli Manning’s 2-yard touchdown run. He said he hyperextended his knee on the play but later said the injury was a bone bruise, so take your pick.

An MRI on Monday found nothing structurally wrong with the knee and Nicks said it is has been feeling better the past two days.
