have built a winning culture around honest, hard work.
Amukamara missed the Giants' Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys with a moderate high ankle sprain suffered during the preseason.
The Giants listed Amukamara as questionable for Week 2 despite practicing all week.
Amukamara's return should help a Giants secondary thinned by injuries.
Cornerback Michael Coe, who is listed as probable, injured his hamstring against the Cowboys. He missed all practices this week.
Terrell Thomas, another cornerback, hurt his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in training camp. He had surgery on the ligament Tuesday, according to The Star-Ledger. It was Thomas' third surgery on his ACL.
