Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks will be out at least three weeks after getting hit in the leg during last night's game. He has something called "Compartment Syndrome," which is the same problem Jason Taylor had during his season with the Redskins. That only cost Taylor two games, but it required constant treatment and Taylor's effectiveness was down for the whole season.
(Note: Compartment syndome is apparently swelling in the lower leg that compresses nerves and blood vessels, possibly causing permanent damage.)

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
