Prince Amukamara could return to practice this week
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (8/23/14) Giants defensive back Prince Amukamara is still recovering from a groin injury, and coach Tom Coughlin told ESPN.com he hopes Amukamara will be back in practice prior to the final preseason game.
"I would think Prince is going to run," he said. "He ran last night, he ran today with the trainers and maybe we’ll get him back this week."
Amukamara missed the team's last preseason game as a result of the injury, suffered the previous week. Assuming he can return to practice before the preseason ends, he should be ready to play by the start of the regular season.

The Giants DST used to be a standout Fantasy option, but they aren't even a No. 1 unit coming into this season. The Giants DST were No. 16 in Fantasy points in 2013 with 34 sacks, 17 interceptions, 12 fumble recoveries and three touchdowns. Getting Jason Pierre-Paul back at 100 percent will help after he battled through a shoulder injury last year, and having Jon Beason for a full season is also a benefit. The Giants also improved their secondary with the addition of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, which should make it tough on opposing quarterbacks with Prince Amukamara on the opposite side, but the key for this Giants defense is their pass rush. If Pierre-Paul is healthy then this unit can shine. Still, go into the season with the Giants DST as a No. 2 Fantasy option, and if they start off the season playing well add them off waivers.
