Not all news was good news on Sunday afternoon, and while the New York Giants were able to route the New Orleans Saints 52-27, it came at a price. Both running back Ahmad Bradshaw and cornerback Prince Amukamara suffered injuries that dramatically altered their playing time, and could affect their status for a week 15 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Amukamara, who has gotten better each week as the season has moved along, suffered a hamstring injury in the second half and would not return. Rookie Jayron Hosley took his place.
"I can’t diagnose it now, I don’t know how bad it is. But I was getting ready to get wrapped up and go back in the game," Amukamara said. "I’ve played with a hammy [injury] before. You've just gotta wrap it up."
Meanwhile, Bradshaw was dealing with his chronic foot issues. He did not immediately return after halftime, but did eventually find his way back into the game for a few plays before again being removed. He finished with just 33 yards on 11 carries.
"Well, I’m sure he is going to be sore as he always is, but he was able to go back in," head coach Tom Coughlin said of Bradshaw. "I think he could have."
Both injuries, along with that of wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee – X-rays), will likely be updated on Tuesday.
