According to Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, Prince Amukamara has a partial tear in his pectoral area and could be out up to a month.

The Giants have allowed the most passing yards per game (304.2) of any team this season.

Amukamara has been one of the few bright spots for the Giants’ pass defense this season. According to Pro Football Focus, only 10 corners have earned a better pass coverage grade than Amukamara this season. He has allowed just 57.1 percent of pass attempts to be completed against him.

In Amukamara’s absence, the Giants will be forced to turn to a combination of cornerbacks including Trevin Wade and Jayron Hosley.
