He fractured a small bone in his foot in May and he didn't miss the entire preseason... He played against New England the other night.
I don't expect him to be worked in slowly at all. He will have his usual role as a primary offensive threat right from the jump. Furthermore, as I said, that is not the reason I didn't draft him and he is not falling in every draft. Marlo said above that in one of his most competitive drafts a few days ago he went in the 2nd round.
Maybe you didn't take him because of injury concerns or Cruz or whatever, but that isn't why I didn't take him and a lot of people are taking him early in drafts.
Miles Austin isn't as good as Nicks and his injury issues are much more severe. Totally different case.
