Prince Amukamara is expected to play after Week One concussion

In many cases, a player who suffers a concussion one week ends up missing the next week.  For Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara, who sustained a concussion when colliding last week with teammate Ryan Mundy, the exception likely will be the rule.

Per a league source, Amukamara is expected to play on Sunday against the Broncos.

Amukamara technically is listed as questionable.  He was cleared this week to practice.  To play, he must be cleared by an independent neurologist and team physicians.

He also must remain symptom free.  Technically, he could be cleared and then uncleared, Ben Roethlisberger-style.

For now, it looks good for Amukamara.  Which is good news for a Giants team that needs to try to hold Peyton Manning to single-digit touchdown passes.

    Soounds like the med staff was being safe initially and he would be cleared because he has had sufficient rest since becoming symptom free, probably the same day/hour.

    Seems like the g-men are allowed to get away with anything uh, obviously he’s still gonna feel it but they letting him play, because they don’t want 4th string cb’s starting against Peyton lol
