Prince Amukamara Could Play for New York Giants in Week 2 Vs. Denver Broncos

The New York Giants will need all the help they can get on defense this coming Sunday when they take on the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium in the third ever "Manning Bowl" game, so it will definitely help if top cornerback Prince Amukamara was able to play for the Giants.

Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record has reported that the expectations around the team are that Amukamara plays on Sunday, although he does have to pass the necessary concussion tests in order to get medical clearance.

"I'm told expectation is [Giants] CB Prince Amukamara (concussion) will be cleared 2 play vs. Broncos. As TC said Monday, has to go thru protocol," he tweeted.

Amukamara suffered a mild concussion in the Giants' Week 1 game against the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday after he smacked helmets with starting safety Ryan Mundy while both players were trying to make a tackle. Mundy got up immediately, but Amukamara was visibly shaken and had to be attended to on the field.

If Amukamara wasn't ready to go for the Giants on Sunday, Tom Coughlin was considering signing rookie Charles James off the practice squad and moving Aaron Ross into the starting lineup to start alongside Corey Webster

However, given the fact that the Denver Broncos scored 49 points and all seven of their touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens were on pass plays, it would certainly help the Giants to have their best cornerback available to help cover receivers like Eric Decker, Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas, who helped combine for the 462 yards that were put up through the air against the defending Super Bowl Champions on opening night.

    I don’t know about you guys but Wilson is annoying me with all this talk. Really starting to wish Doug Martin fell to us now. All he needs to do is shut up, hold on to the ball, block like a man and run hard.

      Social media is like catnip to football players. It makes them crazy, but they can’t resist it. Could Jeremy Shockey pass on a line of blow? Could Plax not buy the Glock .357 Castrator? Could Fatboy Pierce push himself away from the buffet at Mr. Chen’s? Course not … and neither can our guys avoid Twitter. But we shouldn’t take it seriously.

    hopeful news on Prince

    I still don’t believe Jacobs will materially help other than perhaps in certain passing downs where he is a pure pass blocker

    (of course, once in that role, Gilbride won’t be able to help himself, and he’ll turn BJ into the primary receiver or run the dreaded shotgun draw with him)

    as for Wilson, more than the fumbling, he needs to show he can be a tough runner
    we haven’t seen that yet
    we’ve seen him break a couple of runs, but can he grind, especially with this o-line

    in the end, however, while we are all focused on Wilson and Jacobs, the biggest issue and concern remains the o-line. if they continue to play the way they did against Dallas, we will continue to be a bad team

    •  Krow says:

      It’s really not fair to compare Wilson to other backs that have real offensive lines. I was very impressed by the blocking that Washington OL was throwing. They opened some serious holes. This is what you never ever see from our guys … never. Honestly, watch some other teams … the difference is shocking.

      •  JimStoll says:

        so true
        even during the Tiki years the blocking was never that robust
        Tiki made them look good because of his incredible vision and ability to change direction
        but Tiki’s o-line and the lines we fielded between ’05-’09 (the last year being the first year of decline) were head and shoulders better than what we saw last Sunday
        this line needs to improve dramatically and quickly or the offense will be more erratic than usual
