Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is “fine” after dislocating a middle finger in the club’s 41-23 loss to Denver on Sunday, a league source told PFT’s Mike Florio on Sunday night.

Nicks left the game for a short time after sustaining the injury early in the second quarter, but he quickly returned to the game. He caught four passes for 83 yards against Denver.

Nicks has nine catches for 197 yards in the Giants’ first two games.

The Giants (0-2) play at Carolina next Sunday. The winless Panthers have injury concerns at cornerback and safety. According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, five defensive backs were hurt in the loss at Buffalo on Sunday, with safety Charles Godfrey’s potentially season-ending Achilles injury one major concern coming out of the Week Two defeat.

  1. Hakeem might be fine but the Giants sure are not. Two stinkers in a row. Too many problems to list. Coach has his hands full because it does not seem as if he has enough football players. But – it’s just two games and the whole NFC East stunk yesterday so he still has a shot.

  2. Except for Nicks, Cruz the whole team played like garbage yesterday and that is a continuation from last year. Eli on pace for 47 interceptions this year. Giants have lost the ball 11 times this year in 2 games and have 0 takeaways. Jacobs is exactly the same as he was when they cut him, mouthy as hell but struggling for the yard. Either there is no talent on the team or Perry, Kevin and whoever is strength and conditioning needs to go. Gilbride is absolutely out of ideas. I’m never surprised by a Giants offensive play unless Eli is taking advantage of broken coverage.

  3. Sure hope Nicks really OK. He & Cruz were only bright spots in a dismal performance!
    It was a miserable all-around performance but the lack of defense really frosts me. I believe our non existent pass rush is Fewell’s fault. You cannot allow any QB to go untouched let alone one of Peyton Manning’s skills. The Jints need a lot of fixing but the lack of pass rush is the worst.
