New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara suffered a torn biceps tendon during Monday's 40-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, most likely ending his 2014 season.

Head coach Tom Coughlin said after the game that Amukamara's injury "normally" requires surgery, meaning that the fourth-year corner's season is done.

"Prince was playing well," Coughlin said.

The Giants have already lost cornerbacks Walter Thurmond and Trumaine McBride with season-ending injuries. Sixth-round draft pick Bennett Jackson, who was on the practice squad, is also out for the season with an injury. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is dealing with an IT band injury and, as has been the case in recent weeks, has been in and out of the lineup on Monday night.

The Giants chose not to dress newly-signed corner Mike Harris for Monday's game and are increasingly being forced to rely on Zack Bowman and on a three-safety set due to the injuries. We will update you with more information on Amukamara's injury after the game when we get a chance to hear from head coach Tom Coughlin.
