Giants’ cornerback Prince Amukamara hoped to return to the games soon after his preseason foot injury.  Amukamara sustained a high-ankle-sprain during the preseason and was unable to play in the game against the Dallas Cowboys in season opener.  “Of course, I really want to be back out there but this type of injury, the trainers are telling me it takes time, so I’m still taking it day by day” said Amukamara.  But now, after weeks of rehabilitation, Amukamara came back on to the field and helped the Giants win in their second match against the Cowboys, providing some much needed help against the speedy Dallas receivers, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.
A foot injury like Amukamara’s does not always mean that you have to step away from the game for long.
