November 4, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: As feared, CB Prince Amukamara, who suffered a torn biceps muscle during the game on Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts, will miss the remainder of the 2014 NFL season.
“The unfortunate thing that occurred last night was a young man that was playing very good football, Prince Amukamara, was injured and we won’t have him going forward,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “I feel very badly for Prince Amukamara, particularly the quality of the year he was having, then to have this happen. He will recover, do well, and come back, and we move on.”
Coughlin was asked if DE Jason Pierre-Paul’s shoulder injury that caused him to miss practice on Saturday affected him in the game. “It did,” replied Coughlin. “There was one occasion when he came off the field and regrouped. He had an incident with that shoulder and he came off and regrouped and then was very anxious to get back in.”
Coughlin was also asked if it was the same shoulder that caused Pierre-Paul to the last five games of the 2013 season. “I am not going to say at this point because I am not exactly sure,” said Coughlin. “I have to check on last year’s. We felt that it was something that was very controllable, so quite frankly we didn’t think a whole lot about it and perhaps now there will be more emphasis along those lines. I am not going to say which shoulder it is because I would be guessing. I am not sure.”
Coughlin was also asked about the injuries to OG Weston Richburg (ankle) and WR Preston Parker. “Richburg is having all the tests today,” said Coughlin. “He was the one that required much more to be evaluated. I think that process is still going on. Preston rolled his ankle over and hopefully we can get that one under control.”
