During a season in which the Giants defense has been blasted over and over again by injuries, New York will welcome first-round pick Prince Amukamara into his first NFL game.
The cornerback broke his foot in training camp and then underwent surgery, and for the past month or so, it’s been a weekly storyline on whether Amukamara would return for the next game. Until today, it hasn’t come to fruition.
“The sense of urgency definitely is there, but I definitely don’t feel pressured by anyone,” Amukamara said earlier this month. “They’re just supporting me and telling me to get well soon and that they can use me. I’m just doing everything I can.”
Tonight, that patience will pay off when Amukamara takes the field for the first time against the Eagles and starting quarterback Vince Young.
