“As a competitor, I don’t like to miss games, period,” Boley said. “I’m hoping I’ll be out there and I look forward to it.”
Boley said he “took a few reps here and there.” He conceded that he needs more time on the practice field to get in sync with his teammates.
“Anytime that you miss significant time,” he said, “you have to get reps and try to build that chemistry with the guys you’re going to be playing with.”
Nicks said he is not worried about the effect playing a full game will have on his foot.
“When I’m out there, there isn’t going to be an issue,” he said. “It’s a matter of football. Pain is weakness leaving the body, so it is what it is. You can’t worry about it.
“I’m out there. I’m still practicing. I practiced full go today, so if I feel like it was going to be that serious, I wouldn’t be able to practice full go. No problems. It’s just a matter of it’s not feeling great. It is what it is and it’s time to play ball.”
Nicks conceded it will take some time for him to feel normal.
“I’ve probably just got to break it in,” he said. “It might take a week. It might take two weeks. It could take three, four days. You never know. I’m just going to go out there and play ball.”
