Prince Amukamara injures foot, will need surgery

Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara was the last first-round pick to sign a contract and now it appears he'll be the first to miss the start of the season with an injury.

CBSSports.com's Rapid Reporter Alex Raskin writes that Amukamara left practice with a serious foot injury Saturday and will need surgery, the team announced. Amukamara, who was only in his second practice following a holdout, broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot. It is not known how long he'll be out.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger's Zach Berman, "There was nothing apparent about the play when the injury occurred. He walked out of the training complex on his own power with a member of the Giants' medical staff."

Last year, another Giant, offensive lineman William Beatty, suffered a similar injury in the season opener. He missed two months and returned to play the final seven games.

During April's NFL Draft, the Giants were surprised to find Amukamara still available with the 19th overall pick. Now it appears that New York will have to wait a little while longer before their 2011 first-rounder takes the field to help bolster the secondary.

As a Jets fan, here is my unbiased take. The Giants GM, not Tom Coughlin has made questionable decisions to say the least since the lockout ended. On paper, this team looks far less formidable than the 10-6 team of 2010. However, I do not feel Coughlin should take the fall assuming they miss the playoffs again this year. Coughlin has been undermined by the brass above him before the season has started.

A few thoughts:

I stop reading any post that begins "As a Cowboy fan, I ..." That usually means I skip 99 gadzillion posts a day.

If I were an Eagle fan, I would punch in the nose anyone who used the term "Dream Team."  I can see dreaming about Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson.  I don't dream about any of the Eagles' free agents. Maybe Eagle fans have a lower standard in their dreams.

The injury to Prince is disappointing.  I was looking forward to seeing if there was a reason he fell to the Giants.

I agree with everyone else here.  Frank Rizzo has some serious issues.
