Late last week, New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara (ankle) said he was still aiming for a week two return against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Initially met with some skepticism by head coach Tom Coughlin, who said Prince had not yet begun running, all systems were a go on Monday as the second-year cornerback returned to practice for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain against the Chicago Bears in week three of the preseason.
Amukamara was seen running without limitations, back-pedaling, and taking part in individual drills prior to the latter part of practice, which is closed to the media. Whether or not he'll be listed as a full participant or limited participant remains to be seen.
In addition to Prince, defensive tackle Marvin Austin (back) and offensive lineman James Brewer (back) were also on the field for individual drills.
Defensive tackle Chris Canty (knee) and tight Travis Beckum (knee), who both remain on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, were also not practicing.
Other Notes: Newly signed OL Scott Wedige is wearing #61, while DB Terrence Frederick is wearing #38.
