The New York Giants are off to a 3-5 record this season. Now, the team will have to play the rest of the season without one of their best corners.
Head coach Tom Coughlin has confirmed that starting right corner Prince Amukamara has a torn biceps. As a result, he’ll miss the next 8 games.
He’ll have to undergo surgery and will be placed on injured reserve. This will be the first time since 2012 that he’s missed a game.
This already hurts the fading Giants, as it cripples their corner depth. The team is expected to sign someone, but they’ll not be the same as Amukamara.
He’s only 25-years-old, and should be healthy by the off-season. At which time, the Giants are expected to talk to his representatives about a contract extension.
This season, he has 45 tackles, three interceptions, and 11 pass deflections.
In his first two seasons, he missed 12 games. He missed 9 games as a rookie in 2011, before missing 3 games in 2012.
