New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is out two to four weeks due to a chest injury. Team’s head coach Tom Coughlin reported the player has suffered a partial tear in his pectoral area in the victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football.
Coughlin revealed the injury before today’s practice for the Monday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants allowed the most passing yards per game than any other team this season with 304.2 and Amukamara was the best cornerback on the roster allowing just 57.1 percent of pass attempts to be completed against him.
Jayron Hosley should replace him just like he did when Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was out with a concussion. Hosley he leads the team in passes defended with seven. The franchise also signed cornerback Brandon McGee from their practice squad.
Amukamara notched 32 tackles, one interception and a forced fumble in five games with the Giants this season. Back to 2014, he missed half of season with a torn bicep and played in all 16 games in the 2011 season, the same he was drafted.
