Giants 1st-round draft pick CB Prince Amukamara fractures foot; out indefinitely
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) ' New York Giants first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara is going to be sidelined indefinitely with a fractured bone in his left foot.
A day after signing with the Giants, Amukamara was hurt in practice Saturday night and left the field.
Roughly an hour after the workout ended, the Giants said that the cornerback from Nebraska fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot. He will have surgery to have a screw inserted in the foot and be sidelined for an undetermined period.
Amukamara was the 19th overall draft selection. He participated sparingly in his first practice Friday night.
It was not immediately clear how he was hurt. He left the field with a member of the Giants medical staff and X-rays subsequently revealed the fracture.
