Giants Injury Update: Prince Amukamara has torn biceps

By on 11/05/2014 10:30:00 AM

The New York Giants suffered another blow to their already depleted secondary after cornerback Prince Amukamara tore his biceps muscle against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night. Amukamara is expected to undergo surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

Losing Amukamara for the season is especially troublesome for the Giants, as he was arguably their best corner, and often squared off against their opponent's number one receiver. He is tied for the team lead for interceptions (3) with Antrel Rolle.

The Giants have already lost two other corners for the season in Walter Thurmond III, after he suffered a torn pectoral in week two, and losing Trumaine McBride to a thumb injury in week six. With Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie playing through his own injuries, the once promising Giants' secondary is now in shambles.

Amukamara will be replaced in the starting lineup by Zack Bowman, a veteran in his seventh season in the NFL. Bowman played six seasons with the Chicago Bears, although he saw just 23 starts over that time frame.

The Giants play the Seattle Seahawks this week, so look for Russell Wilson and his wide receivers to potentially exploit the depleted secondary of the Giants.
