Giants Week 2 Inactives: Prince Amukamara Out, Hakeem Nicks Active

The New York Giants inactives for their Week 2 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been released, and cornerback Prince Amukamara will not play. The news is a bit shocking considering he was expected to play despite still battling an ankle injury that he suffered during the Giants' final preseason game.

Amukamara did not play in New York's season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and his absence was noticed as the Giants' struggled defending the pass.

Other defenders who will miss the game will be linebacker Keith Rivers (hamstring) and defensive end Adewale Ojomo.

Meanwhile, big-play wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will play despite still having issues with his surgically repaired foot. The Giants offense will be without wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, runningback Da'Rel Scott, tackle James Brewer and tight end Adrien Robinson.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without right tackle Jeremy Trueblood (ankle), cornerbacks Anthony Gaitor and E.J. Biggers, running back Michael Smith, linebacker Najee Goode, tackle Derek Hardman and defensive end George Johnson.
