ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — New York Giants wide receiver/kick returner Dwayne Harris left Saturday’s preseason game against the Buffalo Bills in the first half with an apparent knee injury. The Giants announced that X-rays on Harris’s knee were negative.

Harris was seen on the sideline in the second half in street clothes. He was limping, but did not appear to have a wrap of any kind on his leg and was walking on his own.

Harris emerged as a receiver for the Giants last season with 36 catches. He is also the team’s primary punt and kickoff returner. His loss would be a huge one.

Second-year safety Mykkele Thompson also left the game in the second quarter with a concussion. Thompson was hit on the head by teammate Louis Nix III while both were attempting to make a tackle. Thompson missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon.
