The X-ray on Alex Smith's finger turned out to be negative.

49ers quarterback Alex Smith threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns against the Bills on Sunday, but after the game much of the attention was on his right middle finger. Smith injured the finger during the game but postgame X-rays were negative, according to CSN Bay Area.

Both Smith and head coach Jim Harbaugh said the injury was a sprain. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area said the injury is to the middle finger of Smith's throwing hand despite the fact Harbaugh initially said the injury was to Smith's left hand. Smith's right hand was reportedly in a wrap after the game.

While there will be some concern over Smith's finger going forward, the 49ers did not appear to suffer any other injuries against the Bills. In fact, San Francisco is nearly as healthy as it gets. No player missed the game strictly due to injury. Brandon Jacobs, who is yet to play this season, was a healthy inactive on Sunday.

Assuming Smith's finger injury does not linger into next week, the 49ers should go into their game against the Giants at full strength.
