Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks rejoins the Giants after Victor Cruz sidelined for the season


EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — is back with the New York Giants.

The team announced Tuesday that its first-round draft pick in 2009 was signed to replace fellow wide receiver on the roster.

Cruz, who did not play this season, was placed on injured reserve because he needs surgery on his left calf.

Nicks played last season with the Indianapolis Colts. He had 38 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns in the regular season, and six receptions for 98 yards and a score in the playoffs.
