EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants will be without cornerback Prince Amukamara for the remainder of the season.

The talented cornerback, arguably the best on the Giants' roster this season, tore his biceps during New York's 40-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night. 

Following the game, Tom Coughlin said Amukamara will likely need surgery, ending his season.

Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

Coughlin confirmed on Tuesday that Amukamara's season was over on a conference call, saying: "We won't have him going forward. ... We move on."

This was the latest in a string of miserable occurrences on Monday, a night where the Giants also saw their 2014 second-round pick, Weston Richburg, carted off the field with what looks to be a serious ankle injury.

Over the first half of the season, the Giants have seen season-ending injuries to Victor Cruz (knee), Walter Thurmond III (pectoral) and Jon Beason (foot) already. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is playing through pain and rotated reps against the Colts. That doesn't include injuries to one of their best offensive lineman, Geoff Schwartz, and running back Rashad Jennings, who has yet to return from an MCL sprain.

Nothing appears to be going right for a Giants team that cannot seem to avoid high-impact injuries at crucial positions.
