Hixon said no such thing. Hixon told TGI on Tuesday that he's feeling good and fully plans to play against the Redskins.
Hixon, who practiced on a limited basis, is expected to play key roles on both offense and special teams against Washington.
However, the news is not as good on New York's three other injured players. Kicker Lawrence Tynes (knee), linebacker Jonathan Goff (back) and cornerback Terrell Thomas (hamstring) did not practice and are not expected to play Thursday night. Newly-signed John Carney will handle the kicking duties.
For the Redskins, cornerback Shawn Springs (shin), wide receiver Malcolm Kelly (knee) and safety Kareem Moore (hamstring) did not practice. Jason Taylor (knee) returned to practice, but was limited, as was linebacker Khary Campbell (thigh). Two players on the injury report participated fully in practice: Antwaan Randle El (hand) and safety LaRon Landry (hamstring).
Hixon Ready, Raring to Go
