Giants top pick likely out 2 months, needs surgery

Giants Camp

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Giants top draft pick Prince Amukamara stood uncomfortably on crutches Sunday, one day after breaking his left foot in practice. He's expected to have surgery and may be sidelined for up to two months.

The former Nebraska All-American cornerback was all smiles Friday after getting a four-year, $8.1 million contract following a weeklong holdout. The No. 19 overall pick in the draft says it's ``just a little bit of adversity'' that he's going to have to deal with in the coming weeks.

He broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his foot and will have surgery to insert a screw. He got tangled up with receiver Duke Calhoun during a passing drill, calling it a ``freak thing.''

Amukamara says he's not sure when he'll have surgery, but says ``the sooner, the better.''
