Prince Amukamara DB NYG 11 Days

Amukamara had eight tackles and two passes defensed Monday night.

He had the unenviable task of checking Calvin Johnson, so he saw more than his usual workload.

Amukamara (groin), who was previously expected to undergo an MRI on Monday, will not need such testing now that he's feeling better, reports.

Amukamara pulled out of Saturday's preseason game after tweaking his groin, but said afterward he could still jog and cut without problem. The cornerback just couldn't run full-speed, which is why he sat out the remainder of Saturday's exhibition contest. With the Amukamara's groin now feeling improved, the Giants' No. 1 cornerback will likely be eased back into practice this week, but it appears he avoided a more concerning setback.

Amukamara (groin) will undergo an MRI, according to Giants' coach Tom Coughlin, the New York Daily News reports.

Amukamara left Saturday's preseason game with a groin strain, but told reporters afterward that he didn't feel a pop and was able to both jog and cut while on the sidelines. That being said, Amukamara also revealed that he doubted his ability to go full-speed, so that's why he never returned to Saturday's game. For further clarification on Amukamara's ailment, he'll have an MRI performed on his sore groin. While coach Coughlin is reportedly concerned about his No. 1 cornerback's status, the MRI results should be most telling.

Prince Amukamara has yet to have long-term talks with the Giants.

Amukamara has emerged as an above-average player, but there should be little rush for the G-Men. Amukamara had trouble staying healthy before 2013, and is under team control for a modest total of $7.93 million over the next two seasons. Amukamara will be positioned for a big payday if he repeats his 2013 this season.

Giants exercised CB Prince Amukamara's fifth-year club option for 2015.

The 2015 option is for a non-guaranteed $7 million and doesn't prevent the Giants from negotiating a long-term deal. Therefore, it was a relatively easy decision considering Amukamara's status as an above-average, every-down corner just entering his age-25 season. He'll pair with free agent pickup Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to give the Giants a strong duo for the next two seasons.

The Giants haven't decided whether to exercise CB Prince Amukamara's fifth-year option for 2015.

Amukamara would cost roughly $7.93 million over the next two seasons. While he hasn't established himself as a must-keep player, there's little downside in the Giants picking up the option and keeping open discussions about a long-term deal. Amukamara had 85 tackles and two forced fumbles last year in his first full season as a starter, but has only three career interceptions.

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara is not expected to shadow Calvin Johnson on Sunday.

Amukamara has been the Giants' top corner this season with Corey Webster missing most of the year. However, the Giants play sides. Trumaine McBride handles the left side, while Terrell Thomas mans the slot. Megatron will get some work against all three. In a must-win situation, Johnson could have a huge game.
