Giants will have to continue wait for their Prince
The New York Giants are waiting on their Prince.
And that wait is going to continue.
The hope was cornerback Prince Amukamara, the team’s first-round draft pick, would be back by now, at least practicing. But coach Tom Coughlin said it will be at least three more weeks before he’s in action. Amukamara, after a brief holdout, broke his foot in practice on Aug. 6. The projection was that he would miss 8 to 10 weeks. As Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger notes, it is Week 9.
“I don't know what the original time frame was," Coughlin said, per the report. "Prince is not ready to go, he's not going to be for a while, and we're not going to mess around here. I really don't ask about him every day, as you could probably tell. I don't know much about that because, to me, it's off somewhere in the distance.
"I see what you see, and I see his reaction to the work, it's very slow, as you would imagine, but it's gradual. And we're making progress. There's no setback."
