Prince Amukamara
Nov 4: Amukamara (biceps) will miss the rest of the year, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. A tough blow to Amukamara and the Giants as he was having a Pro Bowl-level season, and the Giants are paper thin in the secondary now with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie playing through injuries and Walter Thurmond already out for the season.

Nov 3: Amukamara has been diagnosed with a torn biceps, after leaving Monday's game against the Colts in the first half. A torn biceps is often a season-ending injury, even when suffered earlier in the year. With just eight weeks remaining, the Giants will likely place Amukamara on injured reserve, leaving Zack Bowman as the probable starter across from a banged-up Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (hamstring/back). A once-deep cornerback group has now lost three players to severe injuries, which leaves Jayron Hosley as the likely nickelback, with Chandler Fenner also a candidate to get snaps in the slot. Bowman, who has started just 25-of-81 career games, is the preferred IDP option of the bunch. He'll likely be tested quite often by opposing quarterbacks, and he flashed strong ball skills during his six-year tenure with the Bears from 2008 to 2013.

Nov 3: Amukamara left Monday's game with a biceps injury and will not return, Mike Sando of ESPN.com reports. The Giants have already been hit by quite a few injuries at cornerback this season, with Walter Thurmond (chest) and Trumaine McBride (thumb) notably on injured reserve, while Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring) returned in a limited role for Monday's game. Amukamara's absence will likely lead to added playing time for Jayron Hosley and Zack Bowman, with Chandler Fenner also a candidate to get some snaps. Amukamara's injury history is rather lengthy, but the past issues mostly related to his lower body.

Sep 8: Amukamara had eight tackles and two passes defensed Monday night. He had the unenviable task of checking Calvin Johnson, so he saw more than his usual workload.

Aug 18: Amukamara (groin), who was previously expected to undergo an MRI on Monday, won't need such testing now that he's feeling better, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports. Amukamara pulled out of Saturday's preseason game after tweaking his groin but said afterward that he could still jog and cut without problem. The cornerback just couldn't run full speed, which is why he sat out the remainder of Saturday's exhibition contest. With his groin now feeling improved, the Giants' No. 1 cornerback will likely be eased back into practice this week, but it appears he avoided a more concerning setback.

Aug 17: Amukamara (groin) will undergo an MRI, according to Giants' coach Tom Coughlin, the New York Daily News reports. Amukamara left Saturday's preseason game with a groin strain, but told reporters afterward that he didn't feel a pop and was able to both jog and cut while on the sidelines. That being said, Amukamara also revealed that he doubted his ability to go full-speed, so that's why he never returned to Saturday's game. For further clarification on Amukamara's ailment, he'll have an MRI performed on his sore groin. While coach Coughlin is reportedly concerned about his No. 1 cornerback's status, the MRI results should be most telling.

May 1: Amukamara will have his fifth-year contract option exercised by the Giants, the New York Daily News reports. Amukamara now stands to be under contract through 2015, although the Giants could either negotiate a long-term extension or cut the cornerback over that span as well. Keeping Amukamara around gives New York further security in the secondary, a unit that added Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond this offseason. In his only complete season of his three-year career, Amukamara totaled 85 tackles (76 solo) and one interception during 2013.
