The news that New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara has been told to "shut it down" highlights -- or lowlights if you prefer -- the information that came from the team's media hour on Tuesday. The Giants practice with the Cincinnati Bengals later in the day.
Prince Amukamara being shut down
Cornerback Prince Amukamara made the trip to Cincinnati, but it's going to be a while before the injured cornerback gets back on the field. Apparently, his groin injury isn't as "little" as coach Tom Coughlin originally thought.

Plan for Amukamara is to shut it down for a few days. Expects to return in next couple weeks though #giants— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) August 11, 2015
Prince Amukamara expects plan to be for him to practice next week as if he were playing vs. Jaguars, but probably won't play game until Jets— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) August 11, 2015
