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.
