New York Giants' first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara practiced today for the first time since breaking his foot in August, according to an ESPN New York report.

Coach Tom Coughlin said the cornerback still is not expected to see game action until after the week seven bye.

Reporters got to see Prince do some special teams punt coverage drills. It was the first time we have seen Prince do anything other than some light backpedaling and cornerback-type drills on his own on the side. That was the only work we saw Prince work in a group. Coughlin reiterated that Amukamara likely is out until after the bye week.     

The Giants selected the 6-foot, 206-pound Amukamara out of Nebraska with the 19th pick overall after he was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. He underwent surgery to repair the broken foot in August, after which he said he "let my team down" by getting injured. 

Brandon Jacobs, Chris Snee, Justin Tuck, LS Zak DeOssie and Henry Hynoski were all expected to miss practice due to various ailments, though center David Baas was expected to practice after missing Sunday's game.
