The first-place New York Giants again were hit with some injuries Sunday in their victory over Miami.

The NFC East leaders saw receiver Hakeem Nicks, center David Baas, running back Ahmad Bradshaw and cornerback Justin Tryon get tweaked in the 20-17 win.

None of the injuries is considered serious and each of the players returned except Nicks, who pulled up near the end of the game.

Nicks hurt a hamstring, Baas a knee, Bradshaw his right foot and Tryon had a stringer.

“I was running a route, I think it was second down,” Nicks said. “I was running and getting into my route and it caught my attention. I knew I could not go back in there and do anything on it, so I had to be smart.”

Dolphins center Mike Pouncey left in the second half after taking a blow to the head.

“I couldn’t feel my legs,” Pouncey said “I’m all right now. It’s my arms that are tingling. It was more scary than anything. I never had that happen in my life.”

Steelers standout linebacker LaMarr Woodley missed portions of the fourth quarter of a win over New England with a hamstring problem. Woodley had two sacks of Tom Brady in the 25-17 victory.

Cornerback Ike Taylor sustained a stinger _ he was down on the ground for a few minutes when he was hurt in the fourth quarter. But he also returned to the game.

Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones strained a hamstring in the first quarter at Seattle and did not return. Earlier, Jones made his return for the first time in a year, having not played since the sixth game of last season with a neck injury. He left the 34-12 win after taking a punt return back 63 yards in the first quarter.

Next week, Cincinnati is at Tennessee, his first NFL team.

“I’m not missing that one in Tennessee. I’ll do whatever I have to do to be healthy,” Jones said.

Montario Hardesty has a strained right calf, leaving the Browns without their top two running backs. Hardesty injured his calf in the first half of a 20-10 loss at San Francisco running a route and did not return. He is scheduled to have an MRI exam Monday, but said the injury does not appear serious. Hardesty was walking around the locker room after the game.

Cleveland already was without starter Peyton Hillis, who missed his second straight game with a strained left hamstring.

Ravens star LB Ray Lewis missed a few plays in the first half with a right shoulder injury against Arizona, then returned.
