Prince Amukamara Injury: New York Giants Rookie Breaks Foot, Will Need Surgery

New York Giants rookie Prince Amukamara broke a bone in his foot on Saturday night in just his second practice.

Just two practices into his NFL career, New York Giants rookie Prince Amukamara suffered a serious foot injury that may keep him out of action for a significant amount of time. Amukamara finally signed with the Giants late last week, joining the team for training camp on Friday. But on Saturday night, Amukamara suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal, and is now facing surgery.

According to a report from ESPN New York, Amukamara will go under the knife to have a screw inserted into the foot to stabilize the broken bone.

Amukamara, the Giants' first-round selection in the 2011 NFL draft, left midway through Saturday night's practice with a member of the Giants' medical staff, and X-rays revealed the fracture, which will require a procedure in which a screw will be inserted into his left foot. It was just Amukamara's second practice with the team after becoming the last first-rounder to sign a contract.

The Giants' rookie is out indefinitely, with no timetable set for his return as of now.
