The Giants will be without cornerback Prince Amukamara today against Tampa Bay. Amukamara has been ruled out as the Giants apparently feel his ankle still isn’t ready to allow him to play. However, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (foot) will play.
Here is the updated inactive list for the Giants injury report:
OUT: Amukamara (ankle), LB Keith Rivers (hamstring), RB Da’Rel Scott (knee), DE Adewale Ojomo (hamstring). WR Jerrel Jernigan, T James Brewer, and TE Adrien Robinson.
Rookie Jayron Hosley will get the start in place of Amukamara. Michael Coe started in week 1 against Dallas, however he is hampered by a hamstring injury that will limit his play. Intriguing indeed.
DT Marvin Austin will make his NFL debut today. Austin has not played since the 2009 Meineke Car Care Bowl for North Carolina.
