Prince Amukamara Breaks Foot in Second Practice
The "steal of the draft", Prince Amukamara has injured a bone in his left foot (5th metarsal) in his second day of training camp after agreeing to terms on his contract.
Surgery will be required, and there is no timetable on when he is likely to return just yet.
Amukamara, the star CB from Nebraska was supposed to be the missing piece to the Giants secondary. Obviously, the Eagles have a much better secondary, but at that time the Giants thought they had the best (Rolle, Ross, Thomas, Phillips).
Amukamara was the last 1st round pick to get signed.
Cornerback Bruce Johnson went down yesterday after injuring his Achilles.
William Beatty had a very similar injury last season that kept him out for 7 weeks. He said it was very painful during those weeks and the he couldn't walk. So we will estimate that Amukamara should be back within 7-8 weeks.
