Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) is expected back Week 12 against the Redskins.

He practiced on a limited basis ahead of Week 10 and now gets the bye week to rest up for the stretch run. Fill-in RCB Jayron Hosley will likely move into the slot between Amukamara and LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Nov 16 - 9:10 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) is out for Week 10 against the Patriots.

He hasn't been active since Week 5. After practicing on a limited basis this week, Amukamara should be in line to return after the Giants' bye week.
Nov 13 - 2:03 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) has been ruled out for Week 9.

It's a nice boost to Mike Evans' matchup. Amukamara will likely be back in Week 10. The Giants will start Jayron Hosley against the Buccaneers.
Nov 6 - 1:54 PM

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News said it "sounds like next week might be a more realistic return target" for RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral).

While coach Tom Coughlin said Amukamara has "worked well" since returning to practice on Wednesday, it looks like he'll sit Sunday against the Bucs. Jayron Hosley should get another start at right corner.
Nov 5 - 1:30 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) returned to practice Wednesday.

Signs point toward Amukamara returning from his strained pec for Sunday's bout with the Buccaneers. LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been excellent this year, and Amukamara is a big upgrade on RCB Jayron Hosley.
Nov 4 - 7:49 PM

The results of Giants RCB Prince Amukamara's (pectoral) Monday MRI were "encouraging."

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Amukamara has a chance to play this weekend. Coming off a game where the secondary was shredded for 511 yards and seven touchdowns, getting Amukamara back would be a big boost. We should know more about his status after Wednesday's practice.
Nov 3 - 8:43 AM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara will have an MRI on his injured pectoral Monday.

Amukamara said he still has soreness and restricted movement in his chest. He is not going to play this week, and it sounds like he is still a couple weeks away. Jayron Hosley will continue to fill in while Amukamara is sidelined.
Oct 29 - 9:07 AM

Prince Amukamara (pectoral) is out for Week 8 against the Saints.

He's still a week or two away from returning. Jayron Hosley has filled in at right corner during his absence.
Oct 28 - 11:48 AM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Giants RCB Prince Amukamara is out a minimum of 3-4 weeks with a "partial tear in his pectoral area."

Losing Amukamara is a big blow for the Giants' defense. Already unable to generate anything resembling a pass rush, New York will now have to rely on Jayron Hosley opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for the next month. Amukamara's absence is an upgrade for Sam Bradford and the Eagles' passing game.
Oct 15 - 8:38 AM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara suffered a pectoral strain in Sunday night's win over the 49ers.

His Week 6 status is in doubt. Depending on the severity, Amukamara could be looking at a multi-week absence. Trevin Wade is Amukamara's backup.
Oct 14 - 5:32 PM

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, the Giants would like to see RCB Prince Amukamara "healthy for a full season" before extending his contract.

Amukamara has made it through a full 16-game slate only once in four NFL seasons. Eli Manning is entering the final year of his contract and remains the Giants' top priority. If New York can get Manning squared away, the G-Men can then assign Amukamara the franchise tag while they work on an extension.
Jul 26 - 12:04 PM

The Giants aren't expected to extend CB Prince Amukamara's contract.

New York will probably extend Eli Manning in the near future to lessen his cap burden, but at $6.896 million, the Giants feel they are getting good value for Amukamara. The hesitation to lock up Amukamara long-term may stem from his season-ending biceps injury. He'll be a free agent after the 2015 season if a deal isn't reached.
Feb 22 - 10:30 AM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (biceps) expects to be ready for OTAs.

Amukamara missed the final eight games of 2014 with a torn biceps. He's scheduled to make $6.898 million after the Giants exercised his fifth-year option and could be a candidate for an extension. Amukamara had 46 tackles, three interceptions, and 11 pass deflections despite playing just 464 snaps.
Jan 28 - 5:38 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Giants coach Tom Coughlin confirmed RCB Prince Amukamara (torn biceps) is done for the season.

He'll undergo surgery, and be stashed on injured reserve. It's a crippling blow for the fading Giants, severely weakening one of their only obvious strengths. Injury plagued his first two years in the league, Amukamara hadn't missed a game since 2012. Still only 25, Amukamara is under contract for $6.898 million next season. Despite the injury, he'll be a candidate for an offseason contract extension.
