Prince Amukamara Could Start Against The Green Bay Packers Next Week

Monday January 9th, 2012

New York Giants rookie Prince Amukamara could start at cornerback this coming weekend against the heavily favored Green Bay Packers, according to the New York Post.

Amukamara filled in for starter Aaron Ross when Ross went down with a concussion in the third quarter of a 24-2 NFC Wild Card win over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon. If Ross is ruled unavailable next weekend against the Packers, the rookie, who has seen limited playing time this season, could be tapped to guard against one of the best passing offenses in the game.

“I know for a fact now I’m gonna be ready,” Amukamara said, “because I’ve been just keeping that consistency.”
