New York Giants backup halfback Danny Ware dislocated his left elbow returning the opening kickoff in the season opener against the Washington Redskins.

Ware, the third back behind Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, was hurt when he was tackled at the end of the 17-yard return. After being treated on the field, he walked to the locker room.

First-round draft pick Hakeem Nicks was taken off the field on a cart after apparently hurting his foot in the fourth quarter. There was no immediate word on the extent of the receiver's injury, but he was undergoing X-rays.
