Giants CB Prince Amukamara Says Sprained Ankle Has Made 'Huge Improvement'
Prince Amukamara realizes his leaving the field on a cart after suffering a high-ankle sprain on Friday was a bit "dramatic."
Of course, at that time, Amukamara was thinking some dramatic thoughts.
"I just felt something poking out the side of my leg," the Giants' cornerback said today in his first session with reporters since getting hurt against the Bears. "And I definitely had a flashback of (breaking) my fifth metatarsal from last season so I didnít know what was going on."
X-rays revealed there was no break, though Amukamara had suffered an injury that can take a while to heal, especially for a defensive back. That injury was described by Tom Coughlin after Friday's game as a "mild" sprain. Coughlin then said on Saturday it's a "moderate" injury. Today, Amukamara backed it down to "mild" when talking about how it felt.
"They didnít tell me an expected time of recovery, but how I feel right now itís a huge improvement from how I felt (Saturday) and after the game," he said. "So Iím just taking it day by day."
