New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Knicks is expected to be sidelined up to 12 weeks after breaking his right foot at a team organized activity on Thursday.

The Giants announced the injury on Thursday afternoon, saying Nicks fractured the fifth metatarsal of his right foot as he was running a route during individual drills.

Nicks will undergo surgery Friday to have a screw inserted into the broken bone.

He  is coming off a career season for the defending Super Bowl champions, catching 76 passes for 1,192 yards and seven touchdowns.

In 2010, Nicks missed the last four games of the season with a broken toe in his left foot.

It’s the second major injury the Giants have suffered in two days of OTAs. On Wednesday, cornerback Brian Witherspoon reinjured his ACL and was carted off the field. Witherspoon was waived Thursday and the team signed defensive back Dante Hughes to replace him.
