NFL Injury Report:
The New York Giants lost starting cornerback Prince Amukamara for the second half of last night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys after
he suffered what was later diagnosed as a concussion, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com.
Amukamara sustained the head injury when he collided
helmet-to-helmet with Giants safety Ryan Mundy. Following the grisly run-in,
both players were eventually able to regain their feet and leave the field
under their own power. Each player went straight to the locker room, as the
half was coming to an end.
Following the half-time hiatus, only Mundy returned to the
contest. Amukamara wasn’t cleared to resume play, as it was reported that he
would miss the remainder of the game with a concussion.
Because Amukamara has been diagnosed with a concussion, he’ll
have to pass the league’s tests before he’s able to return for the Giants. It’s
not clear how long this will take, but over time we’ve seen players return soon
and others require longer absences due to head injuries.
As a result of Amukamara’s injury, the Giants used Aaron Ross to replace him opposite fellow starter Corey Webster. New York continued
using Terrell Thomas as the slot corner.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin watched as his team gave up six turnovers in wild week one loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, and two of them came courtesy of his much-maligned running back David Wilson, who was benched after his costly fumbles. But he's not pulling the plug of Wilson just yet.
According to Paul Schwartz of the NY Post, Giants linebacker Dan Connor suffered a burner.

The New York Giants had a few problems Sunday night in Dallas, but there is no debating which issue did them in the most. That was, without question, the team’s inability to protect the football, especially when it came to the running backs.
