Although he saw less than a handful of snaps in a 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday, that was all it took for New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara to re-injure his hamstring. Now, thanks to that setback, it's unlikely that Prince will play in the regular season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.
"It feels good. There is not a problem of strength, it is not like my hamstring is weak," Amukamara said. "It is just the motion and I can't really extend it. When I run, I like to extend my legs out."
When asked if he'd be able to play on Sunday, Amukamara was honest with his reply: "I'm not sure."
With a wide range of injuries threatening the statuses of other key players like center David Baas, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, defensive tackle Chris Canty and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, the Giants are in no position to lose even more starters. Whether the odds are long or not, they still have a chance at the playoffs and need all hands on deck.
Unfortunately, the inactive list may be a who's who of Big Blue superstars.
