Giants secondary is banged up badly; Prince Amukamara suffered bicep injury
New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara suffered a biceps injury in the second quarter of Monday Night’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, and the Giants announced that he would not return to the game.
It’s a major injury for a Giants secondary that’s already suffering significantly due to injury and is facing the league’s No. 1 passing offense in the Colts. Nickel cornerbacks Walter Thurmond and Trumaine McBridealready have been lost for the year, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is severely limited due to leg and back injuries and has been in and out of the Monday night game so far.
At this point, that leaves Zack Bowman, Chandler Fennerand Jayron Hosley as the only fully healthy cornerbacks on the Giants’ roster, though they can supplement it somewhat if they use three safeties and move Stevie Brown or Antrel Rolle to the nickel position.
The Giants signed cornerback Mike Harris off the Detroit Lions’ practice squad last week, but he is inactive for Monday Night’s game.
