The Giants highly anticipated Week 2 matchup against the Denver Broncos is getting closer by the second. With that in mind, let’s take a look at who will be ready to take the field for Big Blue, and who will be watching from the sidelines in our Week 2 New York Giants injury report.
Even though Prince Amukamara was held out of practice on Wednesday, the talented young corner did participate in some light running. In most cases, players returning from concussions stay off of the practice field completely, so the fact that Prince engaged in any physical activity seems to be a good indication of his status for Week 2. It is not yet clear whether Amukamara will practice at all this week, however, if Prince can pass the league mandated concussion tests before Sunday he should be on the field against the the Broncos in Week 2.
Giants starting center David Baas was back on the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since he injured his MCL during the second preseason game against Indianapolis.
“Today was a big step forward and we are going to keep monitoring it day by day and see how it goes,” Baas said. “Last week it didn’t work out but I was preparing myself to play and I am going to do the exact same thing this week. I think I got a good shot.”
Baas told reporters that his goal is to be back on the field Sunday against the Broncos. If that can happen it would allow Kevin Boothe to slide back to his natural position at left guard, and go a long way in strengthening what has been a patchwork offensive line for the Giants to start the season.
